The Nunzi Conti Family began their adventure in the wine business at the end of the 1800 when young Gualtiero Nunzi left his small village in the Tuscan mountains and moved to Florence.
After arriving in the Tuscan capital, he undertook a string of very different but profitable jobs and after only a few years, Gualtiero was able to make his dream come true purchasing the family’s first vineyards in Val di Pesa in the heart of the Chianti Classico area.
When Gualtiero passed away, the winery was inherited by his eldest son, Antonio, who carried on the family tradition with the same dedication of his father. Antonio strongly believed in the area’s vocation for winemaking and was one of the founders of the Consorzio del Vino Chianti Classico Gallo Nero.
CREDAMORA COL FONDO
A few years after the end of the second world war, Antonio’s brother, Gualtiero Armando focused all his business in viticulture and on May 26, 1970, he was made Vice President of the Consorzio Vino Chianti Classico and held the role of President between 1994 and 1997. With the entrepreneurial approach, Gualtiero Armando planted new vineyards, purchased more land and built a profitable and efficient winery whilst respecting the beauty and nature of the extraordinary countryside of Chianti hills.
In 1965 he purchased the 15th century Villa Pancani that was later named Villa Barberino. Today the Villa and surrounding land remains the heart of the Nunzi Conti family estate. Today Antonio and Isabella, assisted by winemaker Giampaolo Chiettini, manage the winery with the same passion and dedication that drove young Gualtiero at the end of the 1800s.
