The project – Cantina Santo Iolo
Alessandra Buffetti and Pietro Ducoli are husband and wife and are the head, the heart and soul of Santo Iolo. Both medical doctors, have found in this corner of paradise, at the border between Umbria and Lazio, the home of their dreams, to relax from the stress of work and the city and where they grew their two daughters. In short no long tradition of wine making behind them, but a big love for country side living and a passion for wine! Hence the purchase, in 2003, of a vineyard that sold adjacent to their original property and from there, with a lot of passion and the help and support of great professionals, Cantina Santo Iolo was born and in 2010 came out with its first bottles. The choice was for international varietals that in this area “are at home.” Then the wisdom and professionalism of the wine maker along with the curiosity of the owners, have added the cultivation of varietals unusual in these area betting on adding interesting expressions to the wines. This very well thought project resulted in wines of great intensity and character, naturally grown and professionally blended.
