The Sant' Agnese Estate has now been run by three generations of the Fanetti family, beginning with Adamo, followed by Giuseppe, and now Elisabetta, who picked up her father's secrets over the years by accompanying him through the vineyards as a young girl. The first renaissance of the Vino Nobile took place in the 1920s, thanks to Adamo Fanetti. He brought his wine to the wine fairs that took place in Siena in the 1930s, and from that moment the wine's fame was assured. Awards came quickly, including international recognition, such as the gold medals won at the Grands Prix of Paris, Ljubljana and Milan. Fanetti was the Vino Nobile, and the two would become synonymous. Adamo was one of the foudners and early promoters of the wines of Montepulciano, eventually helping to create the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano DOCG.
