The Romanelli family has been associated with the RISECCOLI estate since the early 1900s when Romano Romanelli, the third in a line of renowned Florentine artists and sculptors, acquired it in 1902. While mainly known as a member of the prestigious Florence Academy of Arts, Professor Romanelli also had a keen interest in agriculture, viticulture and winemaking.
Tenuta RISECCOLI is now owned by his daughter, Ilaria Romanelli. Ilaria carries on the winemaking tradition established by her father, helped by her French husband, Arnaud Faure, and their 4 sons. Through their dedication to maintaining the family legacy and producing outstanding wines, they have turned RISECCOLI into an acclaimed Tuscan wine estate.
