Francesco Mulinari started L’Aietta in 2001 while still in high school. His family owned a piece of land where he’d go for picnics that had some olive trees and grape vines. Soon he discovered that the vines were registered at the consortium under the name Brunello and his idea for a winery began to take shape. Francesco planted more vines in 2004 amongst the sandy soil terraces with century old walls. All the vines at this site are head trained. Four years ago he purchased another vineyard at the Southern edge of Montalcino where the grapes for his Rosso grow.
