The protagonists

We have already mentioned Enzo Morganti, one of the people who shaped modern Chianti Classico thanks to his knowledge of the land and his tremendous foresight. He was the new man who allowed San Felice to become a modern, highly competitive winery. Of course, Mr. Morganti's philosophy has

been carried forward by his collaborators and those who came following his passing, with the same passion as 40 years ago.

In order of seniority, the first name is Carlo Salvinelli, agronomist and San Felice's living memory, who arrived in 1973. He has witnessed all the major moments of recent Tuscan viticultural history, from the

passage from tenant farming to specialized viticulture, and from doing things by hand to doing them with machines. Now he is flanked in the management of the vineyards by Roberta Pugliese, agronomist. 1984 was the year of Leonardo Bellaccini, enologist, who came not much more than a

boy, but immediately threw himself into San Felice's major projects; he now oversees production, and is recognized as the father of Pugnitello. In 2005 Fabrizio Nencioni arrived to take the post of sales

director; he has spent his life in and for Chianti Classico, and knows all the aspects of wine making and sales. Since May of 2007 the general management of San Felice has been entrusted to Alessandro Marchionne, Florentine by birth and Milanese by training; after a career in upper level

management in multinationals of the food sector in Italy and abroad he decided to return to Tuscany and take on the challenge of bringing a new shine to San Felice and highlight the excellence of its products.

A team, assembled by chance or perhaps not, but all Tuscan, and whose very DNA naturally leads it

to interpret the values of San Felice.
