Who We Are
Tenuta Martinelli winery owned by the brothers Giuseppe, Fabio and Cristian located at the foot of Monte Orfano, is developed with owned vineyards among the towns of Cologne, Provaglio d’Iseo and Passirano.
This diversification between terraced colluvia soils and the majestic Franciacorta morainic amphitheater gives our grapes a unique complexity. Uniqueness which can be also found in the magnificent setting of Monte Orfano, where the winery is located. This area preserves an ancient history and is characterized by geological peculiarities, which have created a strong link between territory and population.
- ``Red earth``, which confirms the presence of calcareous soils and together with clayey elements and iron oxide, creates this particular phenomenon.
- Pinot bianco, Pinot nero, Chardonnay, Moscato, Cabernet franc, Merlot.
- Cologne, Provaglio d'Iseo
Our wines have as a common feature the respect for biodiversity, which combined with the passion and experience of the owners and employees of the winery, makes our production a constantly developing adventure.
Our projects include the Franciacorta D.O.C.G. “Benedetta Buizza” line: Brut and Satèn, dedicated to the memory of the Martinelli brothers’; mother. Our Franciacorta Brut with its fresh bouquet and very fine perlage is ideal for every occasion, from the aperitif to special occasions. We can define the Franciacorta Saten soft and persistent, hiding in itself a magic union of complexity and elegance.
The production continues with the red reserve wine “Erman”, a charismatic wine, in memory of their father Ermanno: guardian of the great passion inherited by his sons for the wine world. Completing our Erman line you will find our Curtefranca white wine “Curté” with a rich and complex structure, but at the same time balanced. We offer also a Curtefranca red wine “Romeo” soft, charming; and a IGT white wine, which represents a project based on freshness and modernity.
