The Tenuta Santori Company comes from a challenge.

Marco is a young man who belongs to a family of excellent nurserymen who know what the land is and how it works.

He has the privilege of living in the Piceno territory, rich in history and beauty, with a breathtaking view that extends from the Gran Sasso to the Sibillini Mountains and on to Dalmatia.
Marco graduated from the University of Viticulture and Oenology in Teramo. Taking advantage of this period during his studies, he traveled and gained experience in important companies in the sector, such as Spain, California, France, and from time to time covered increasingly specific and important tasks. He recognized that his curiosity, passion and feeling in his work is what drives him to continue traveling, but it is the call of his land that has become increasingly stronger.

The Estate

The challenge comes from here: trying to make a winery in Ripatransone that not only knows how to replicate the characteristics of excellence seen elsewhere,

but try to do better because “After all…” Marco says, “We do not lack anything to do well. We have generous territory; we also have tradition, indigenous varieties, and abundant expertise. Then we try to excel, to be us, an example of quality and style!”
The winery was born, splendid, and perfectly camouflaged in the hill where the estate stands: twenty-five hectares of vineyards and olive groves whose varieties are the autochthonous ones, such as Montepulciano, Sangiovese, Passerina, Pecorino, and Trebbiano.

“…Yes, a modern and super-technological cellar with zero environmental impact. A choice we chose so as not to spoil the panorama of these wonderful hills with an industrial warehouse”, says Marco Santori.

A Question of Passion

There have been few collaborators,

only those who have helped their parents in the nursery, who love it and have seen it grow. It is not a question of numbers, but a question of passion, quality, and heart.

The Winemaker

Pierluigi Lorenzetti

““When I decided to ask an oenologist for advice, I had no doubt about the person to whom I could entrust my cellar. The agreement that ensued was immediate.

I already knew Pierluigi, both being from Grottammare. Yet as soon as we started collaborating, I immediately recognized his excellent qualities and the great passion he has for his work, further increasing the admiration I already felt towards him.

He is a great professional from whom I can learn a lot and it is a real privilege to work alongside him. Together we are doing a meticulous job on each indigenous grape variety tracing the style of Tenuta Santori wines.
