The San Vito estate, just over 10 miles from Florence, lies in the hills of the Chianti Colli Fiorentini. Certified organic by ICEA, it produces its wines without the use of weed-killers, pesticides or synthetic chemical treatments. Attilio Pagli, San Vito's current winemaker, was born in Tuscany and pursued his professional studies in Italy; his numerous contacts on the international scene allowed him to deepen his oenological experience. Pagli carefully oversees every step of the harvest, winemaking, and ageing of the wines. He works closely with other wineries throughout the world and has won increasing attention and accolades from wine experts and professional journals. Pagli is widely considered one of Italy's foremost wine experts.
