Badia a Coltibuono

The Stucchi Prinetti family in Badia a Coltibuono are to be considered among the pioneers of Chianti having already invested in this estate in 1846, when the Florentine banker Michele Giuntini, ancestor of the current owners, bought the beautiful Romanesque structure and the surrounding farms. From that year on, Badia a Coltibuono flourished again thanks to numerous interventions through the generations of the family. It was inherited in the 1930s by Maria Luisa Stucchi Giuntini and managed, transformed and passed through the Second World War unscathed. His son Piero Stucchi Prinetti joined his mother in the 1950s and later, thanks to his vision, energy and managerial skills, he began the transformation into a modern company. It was he who was among the first to bottle and sell, on the national and international market, the best vintages of the estate’s Chianti Classico, up to that time kept in the ancient cellars of the abbey as a family reserve. Piero Stucchi Prinetti was the first to understand the potential of another traditional product of the area: extra virgin olive oil. During the 1980s and 1990s, three of the four children took over the management of the company.
