In the 1990’s the Mazzei family purchased the Belguardo Estate, located in the Maremma region of southernTuscany. This new property embodies the Mazzei’s drive to experiment, express their creativity and achieve flexibility in their portfolio of wines; it provides balance to Fonterutoli’s focus on tradition and the uncompromising approach in the production of Sangiovese and Chianti Classico.

The vineyards of Belguardo have been planted with a combination of traditional local grapes (Sangiovese, Alicante and Vermentino) and international ones (Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Viogner).

Belguardo wines have been recognized and well received in the world’s main markets. Apart from their popular Tenuta Belguardo and Serrata, Marchesi Mazzei also produce a Morellino di Scansano, a Vermentino and a Sangiovese/Sirah rosè.

Belguardo’s logo, fashioned after a geometrical symbol sketched by Leonardo da Vinci, represents a union between precision and perspective. It is emblematic of the Mazzeis’ commitment to combining exceptional growing conditions with centuries of winemaking expertise to yield concentrated, complex wines that are extraordinarily elegant and aromatic.
