Pecci Celestino farm takes its name from its owner who, led by his passion for farming, acquired the two farmhouses and the land around them. Celestino’s family is a simple one, bound to traditions and unwilling to forget its roots; for this reasons one of the vineyards is named after Maddalena, mother of Celestino, who died in 2000 but is still present in the memories of the days spent together between stornelli and youth recounts. In 2003, Tiziana (Celestino’s only child), inspired by her father’s passion for wine making, devoted herself to the family business. Her dedication to quality has produced wines with a strong personality like the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG.
