The story of the Piccini family behind Badia al Colle is a story of four generations of passion, values, and knowledge of wine. Piccini is grounded to the Tuscan land and its traditions, but its not bound by it. In fact, Piccini today has an orange soul, a color that perfectly represents our vibrant dynamic and innovative personality, and an international brand, the brand of a company known and appreciated. The family owns five estates in Italy ranging from Tuscany to Basilicata to Sicily. Located in the heart of Chianti Classico, Piccini is today one of the major players in Tuscany and its wines are distributed to 80 countries throughout the world. Our tradition begins in 1882, with Angelo Piccini, from a small family enterprice of only seven. Hah! Guided only by passion for winemaking, from him the next generations inherited the most important rule in Piccini winemaking: “It is not how much you do, but how much passion in the doing.” Nowadays, Tenute Piccini has four separate estate in its portfolio and ranks as one of the most recognized brands of Tuscan wine in the world.
