It all starts from …
Anna Maria Sommaruga, Andrea’s grandmother, bought the property of Panzanello in 1964. The grandmother decided to transform it in order to welcome her children and grandchildren and pass on, to future generations, what “family” means. Here was born Andrea’s love for the vineyards and in 1994, not wanting to be an accountant in Rome, he moved to Panzanello. In December 1994 his adventure as a winemaker began. Right from the start, Andrea Sommaruga continued to “educate” his vineyards as Francesco Ciucci D’Ugolino did in 1436.
Andrea has continuously selected the best grapes, in order to give life, year after year, to quality wines. Those who drink Panzanello wines are offered the opportunity to experience the passion behind it by taking a real journey through time. The first bottling of wine produced by Andrea was in 1997 and it wasn’t a bad start! He started with 8000 bottles. In 1997 Andrea married Ioletta and she too, having moved from Rome to Panzanello, abandoned the idea of being an architect. In order for the wines to satisfy and conquer even the most experienced of his customers, Andrea has invested all his efforts in making sure that every single bottle can convey its uniqueness.
