About

Michele Guarino and Benedetta Lenzini farm 13 ha of vines in the Colline Luccesi, organically and biodynamically. The property was established in the 16th Century. Napolean Bonaparte’s sister, Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi, planted vines on this very site in 1800, specifically, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Michele and Benedetta work tirelessly to produce expressive wines where human intervention is as non-existent as possible. Both aspire to maintain a lifestyle that respects the planet and maintains vitality in their soil. For them, it is spiritual—what they refer to as ‘emotional oenology’. Il Salvataggio means the “Rescue” and is a tribute to Michele and Benedetta’s passion for animals. They have seven rescue dogs. 3% of all profits for this wine are donated to Best Friend’s Animal Hospital annually.
