Tenuta Mazzolino

T he Mazzolino Estate is a unique meeting point between different cultures, where modern technology and ancient traditions blend. Founded by Dr. Enrico Braggiotti and supported by Giacomo Bologna and Luigi Veronelli, two wine legends, Mazzolino's success story started with the challenge to produce red wine in a region where Pinot Noir was only used for white wines. Today, the Estate follows a strict organic agriculture approach, respecting the environment and creating authentic wines with a strong identity.

Tenuta Mazzolino is located on the 45th parallel north in the Oltrepò Pavese region. The estate's 22 hectares are divided into 39 small parcels with diverse soils and exposures. Sustainable agricultural practices are used to bring out the unique expressions of each parcel.

Each wine originates from specific parcels of land that have their own identity, which is discovered with each harvest. The reason behind the 39 separate parcels is to showcase each one's unique expression. The agronomic practices prioritize the use of cover crops such as vetch, alfalfa, and phacelia instead of fertilizers, and only copper and sulphur are used for treatments. The land is deeply respected and cared for with passion.

Tenuta Mazzolino prioritizes biodiversity and sustainability, adopting natural and eco-friendly production methods, including a gradual shift towards organic agriculture.

Mazzolino Estate's wines aren't just the result of correct parameters and grape quality, but the essence of the Braggiotti family's deep passion for farming Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Bonarda, and Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards since 1980.
