History

The San Giuseppe Winery takes its name from the sharecropping estate established by Giuseppe Martelli in 1910. Abandoned in 1940, the estate was then acquired by our family in 1992. The Winery is located to the south of the town of Montalcino, just a stone's throw from Saint Antimo Abbey.

 

This church – located in an isolated position surrounded by lush greenery – was first built in the Roman epoch, and it remains a stunning sight, a masterful exercise in simplicity and purity, its white alabaster diffusing the soft sunlight. Here at the Winery, we work hard to preserve the harmony of the natural environment – we feel fortunate to be guests in a generous land protected by Mount Amiata.

 

 We have every intention of continuing to be a small-scale producer with just a few plots – this way, we can walk around our vineyards personally and get to know them a little better every day. The company was founded by our family and has grown with it. The estate extends across 13.45 hectares on what is an integral piece of land around the cellar complex - an area that is home to woodlands, olives groves (planted in 1920) and 5.5 hectares of vineyards.

Vineyards

Each plot is a small cru with its own distinct character, and the wines are vinified separately in one or more wooden vats.
A great deal of time and resources are dedicated to the maintenance of the ecosystem of the area around the vineyards and the company facility. We endeavor to cultivate grapes that are healthy, powerful, flavorsome and unique to each vintage. In this way, we can produce wines that are pure, unrepeatable expressions of their terroir of origin as it was in the year the grapes were grown.
The company has been certified organic since 1996. Biodynamic methods have been used since 2002.

Winemaking

The cellar complex is on three levels and uses a gravity system. In the cellars, we aim to tap the potential of every single vineyard. The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small trays before being destalked, and they are then allowed to fall into 30-quintal wooden vats. Nothing is added to the bunches except for small doses of sulfur dioxide.

 

Once alcoholic fermentation is complete, the "wine" is taken down to the ageing cellar, where it will mature in small barrels made from thick wood, or in barriques (225-liter casks) or tonneaux (900-liter casks). The ageing cellar is 15 meters deep, allowing the temperature to remain at a constant, natural level.

 

The wine is aged for as long as it takes for it to reach optimum maturity, and each part of the ageing process is carried out in accordance with our quality-control guidelines. The bottles are filled one at a time, before being stored in a temperature-controlled environment for a suitable period of in-bottle ageing.

Wine Moments

Here you can see wine moments from tastingbook users.    or    to see wine moments from your world.

 Ian D' Agata, Wine Writer (Italy)  tasted  1 wines  from  Stella di Campalto  . In a tasting of  26 wines 

Ceretto Barbaresco Bricco Asili 1978 / Dark red with an amber edge. Deep, concentrated aromas and flavors of red cherry, minerals, marzipan, mushroom and spices. Complex and tactile on the palate; in fact, this wine is still marvelously rich and dense—thicker and more concentrated than the 1982 but also less piercingly fresh. Smooth tannins caress the palate on the rising finish. A great wine and an example of how great traditionally made Barbarescos can be.
