Giuseppe Maria “Giugi” Sesti did not initially choose a career in wine. Instead, he studied music, art, and astronomy, making the last of those his profession. He met his future wife in North Wales (sigh) while writing his first book on this topic. In 1975, they moved their family to Tuscany where they purchased the abandoned ruins of the hamlet and castle of Argiano in Montalcino, slowly clearing the land and restoring the buildings to create the beautiful estate we see there today. Giugi continued actively writing books on astronomy and in 1991 he planted his own vineyards on the slopes around the castle. In 1999 his daughter, Elisa, joined the estate full time and today she is an active partner in all aspects of the vineyard management and winemaking.
Their Rosato was born directly of necessity, since the family wanted something light and cooling to drink under the hot summer sun; they were forced to increase production when visiting friends and clients tried these wines and started placing orders. It is produced via the saignée method and does not go through malolactic fermentation.
