Antonio Sanguineti did his first harvest when he was 8 years old and began crafting wine at age sixteen on his family’s farm (Pagliarese Winery) in Castelnuovo Berardenga ( Siena ).
His long list of mentors and partners reads like a virtual who’s who in Italian enology. Among a lot of known names. none had a greater influence on him than the legendary Giulio Gambelli, which was the oenologist of Fattoria Pagliarese “He was Tuscany,” says Antonio. He was an old-fashioned man who knew how to value time and demanded that wines enter the market only when in his opinion they were ready. Together with Giacomo Tachis he was the person who most influenced the great Tuscan winemaking from the post-war period up to the early 2000’s.
With the knowledge and experience gained during the collaboration with various Tuscan winemakers, he decided, while still young, to directly manage vineyards in the most important areas of Tuscany and, in the years of his maturity, to start a series of collaborations with producers and friends winemakers; the combination of these two activities culminated in the creation of the Antonio Sanguineti Brand.

And mental masturbations.

The result is in the pages of my blog.
The impressions left by the wines that struck me most, a section dedicated to wines with a good value for money that according to my palate deserve to be tasted, visits to wineries or tasting events, my chats with some producers, part of the notes collected during my course to become a sommelier, a column of Italian wineries selected on the basis of my experiences, the most beautiful phrases about wine, my short stories ...
Arm yourself with a good bottle of wine and a glass.

Nice to meet you,
My name is Marco, sommelier by passion (AIS graduate), serial producer of mental masturbations, husband, father, son, friend, anxious professional.
Forty years of refinement, a still undefined evolutionary state, a great passion, the world of wine, and a great need, to write.
To give my dreams a home, to download my fears on a white sheet.
And to be able to scream, out of my mind, without disturbing anyone.
Sommelier, hotel director, entrepreneur. Life lover, father, drinker.
I like to share ideas, savor the essence of a few idle moments, possibly with a glass in front and a good dish.
Too lazy to cook, I try to taste and spend good time entertaining my guests.
Grab a chair and sit down!
We will probably talk about wine, about food, certainly about something that has to do with the senses and with beauty.
Or we will be silent and let the flavors speak to us. We don't know how long we will live, let's enjoy life!
