Tenuta Prima Pietra was founded in 2002 by Massimo Ferragamo, who bought up land on the highest hill in coastal Tuscany. At 450m altitude, it lies close to the sea and the medieval village of Riparbella, just north of Bolgheri. Massimo wanted his wine to benefit from the purity and freshness gained from a cooler site, where the sunshine is hot and intense during the day, then temperatures drop sharply at night. He planted vines and five years later harvested his first grapes. The winery's third release, 2009, put it on the world map, with 96 Points from James Halliday. In 2019 they completed a beautiful, new cellar – well worth a visit. Handpicking of organic grapes, gentle handling and 18 months in French oak ensure a red of great finesse.

"Lots of blackberry, cherry, lightly toasted oak and cedar character. Chewy yet polished tannins" James Suckling
