Giovanni Cenci is the third generation to farm and make wines at Cantina Cenci, but grapegrowing on his plots in Umbria can be dated back to 1623. Then the land was tended by Olivetan monks. The lands were replanted with vines in the 1950s by Giovanni's grandfather. He planted Grechetto and Sangiovese which today constitute the estate's top holdings along with plantings of Trebbiano, Pinot Grigio, and Merlot. All farming and winemaking is certified organic. Only native yeasts are used in the cellars, and the wines are made with minimal manipulation.
