The winery is located in the municipality of Castellina in Chianti (province of Siena) in the Italian region of Tuscany. San Leonino is located at the foot of the "Monti del Chianti" hills and was already mentioned in documents in the 11th century. It has been part of the Chianti region since the 13th century. Since 1993, it has been owned by Società del Gruppo Bertani Domains, which operates six wineries in Italy with a total of 1,600 hectares of land. These are Bertani in Verona, Val di Suga in Montalcino, Trerose in Montepulciano, Puiatti in Romans d'Isonzo, Fazi Battaglia in Castelplanio, and Jesi and San Leonino in Castellina in Chianti. It is managed by Emilio Pedron, with Andrea Lonardi, Marco Ostan and Francesco Basili responsible for the cellar technology. The first Chianti-Classico of the house dates back to 1973 and is still on sale.
