Il Paradiso di Manfredi
Il Paradiso di Manfredi is a winery that speaks to individualists. The estate was purchased in the 1950s by Manfredi Martini and his wife before Brunello was even a true DOC. Manfredi wasn't exactly jumping into a world he didn't understand - he worked for Biondi Santi in the 1950s.
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 says the winery has followed prior to "biodynamics" becoming a buzzword. Il Paradiso di Manfredi creates Brunellos and Rossos that are loaded with character and they've now been a beacon of traditional Brunello for over half a century.
