Il Paradiso di Manfredi is a winery that speaks to individualists. The estate was purchased around 1950 by Manfredi Martini and his wife, Fortunata, before Brunello was even a true DOC. They have now been making wine using traditional methods for over half a century.

"The tiny Il Paradiso di Manfredi farm, run by three generations of a close-knit and delightful family, makes the most soulful wines in the entire appellation.' These wines are made very naturally, very carefully, in the traditional way, with indigenous yeasts, long macerations and long aging in large barrels." - Kerin O'Keefe


Today that tradition is carried on by Manfredi’s daughter and son-in-law, Sorella and Florio Guerrini, using no herbicides or fertilizers, a philosophy Florio followed prior to the application of the word biodynamics. Il Paradiso di Manfredi creates Brunellos and Rossos that are loaded with character and rich textures.
