AS HONEST, GENEROUS AND DETERMINED AS THEIR ANCESTORS
LE BENDUCCE... A WINERY, A FAMILY
The Tornesi family has owned the estate since 1856
Generation after generation, the love and passion for their land has been passed down.
The bond to their origins is as solid and strong as this medal given to the current owener's grandfather. Each member of the Tornesi family was born and raised here and has worked within the winery helping it grow year after year.
The estate has always produced wine. In 1967 gino Tornesi registered his vines as Brunello becoming one of the first members of the Consorzio as a producer, but not a bottler.
His son Maurizio started the production and business side in 1993 with the first vintage of Rosso di Montalcino and in 1998 with Brunello ( 1993 vintage ).
Today, the winery has a new fully equipped cellar built in 2009 in a classic style, traditional with its structure in stone and rock.
It also has a beautiful terrace, which affords a most wonderful view of the countryside.
The wines are proof of work done with passion and obstinacy.
