I BALZINI, Barberino Val d’Elsa

I BALZINI Winery was born from Vincenzo D’Isanto’s passion for wine. In the 1970s he bought a house and some farmland in the municipality of Barberino Val D’Elsa. The land’s name was I Balzini, a word that in Tuscany indicates hill cliffs. Vincenzo planted the first vineyard and after a few years of experimentation entrusted it to the care of Giulio Gambelli. With his help, I Balzini White Label was born in 1987. Over time, Vincenzo’s love for wine was passed onto his wife, Antonella, who left her work as a consultant and moved to the hills of Barberino Val d’Elsa. Here, she learned all she could about wine, and, within a few years, became the head of the winery.
