Il Paradiso di Manfredi is a tiny estate of 2.5 ha in the heart of Montalcino. In the 50’s Manfredi worked for the famous Biondi Santi estate. In 1958 he bought Il Paradiso di Manfredi where there were more olive trees than vines and indeed in that period in Montalcino the olive oil production was higher than the wine production. Initially they were harvesting around 10000kg of olives each year but at the beginning of the 60’s a big freeze destroyed all the olive trees and Manfredi decided to replant everything with vines. In 1982 Manfredi died, and Florio, Manfred’s son in law, decided to work on the estate full time. Florio had always been passionate about wine and helped Manfredi, but his main job hitherto had been as a maths teacher!

Earthy, alluring aromas of new leather, freshly tilled soil and red fruits shape the nose. The palate is smooth and delicious with ripe black cherry, strawberries and sweet tobacco alongside polished tannins.
