The farm La Rasine borns in the 70’s by Santi Mantengoli, but just in the second half of the 80’s, through the successor Vasco, the work was directed towards the winemaking activities. Since 1988 the company focused more on this area which in Montalcino was evolving rapidly ; many investments both in the vineyards and in the cellar , have led the company to the current situation. Since 1997 the company is led by Marco Mantengoli , young wine technician, which placed its new ideas and modern technology and decades of experience handed down by his father.
