Borgo Salcetino was established in 1996 when Valneo and Tonino Livon, two Friulan winemakers decided to spread their skills in winemaking to the Chianti Classico area, precisely to Radda in Chianti.
The estate comprises 30 hectares, half of which are dedicated to wine growing. An important gradual renovation of the vineyards has been carried out, which included reaching a density of 7000 plants per hectare, and improving the quality of the vines, and integrating the current native Sangiovese and Canaiolo with an experimental Merlot.
The winery and cellars have also undergone extensive renovations in terms of technology but have maintained the original local characteristics.
Wonderful underground cellars house the oak barrels in which the Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva wines and our Rossole age to perfection.
The Livon Family has experienced a wonderful friendly atmosphere as newcomers. The locals are warm-hearted and bearers of ancient values, and it is always a pleasure to spend time together chatting in front of the great fireplace, during memorable dinners and celebrations.
