Podere Il Cocco

Steeped in history, the vineyards have belonged to the Bindi family for over three hundred years which is a rarity in Montalcino. With just over two hectares and a couple of farmhouses, Giacomo inherited the business from his Father five years ago.

Always organic, Giacomo has progressed to biodynamic practice. No pumps, no temperature controlled vats, only a troublesome horse and some stainless steel vats for fermentation.

This is the epitome of tiny, wonderful vineyards, in a difficult vintage Il Cocco will produce 6,000 bottles, in a good year 10,000.
