The Melini family has been making wine in Chianti since 1705.
Widely renowned as a world leader in the market, they have been at the forefront of innovation in Tuscany since their inception, from being the first to vinify their wines by vineyard, to introducing the famed Chianti straw flask in the 19th century.
