In 1979 the Schwarz family from the Alto Adige purchased La Magia and moved to the Montalcino area to dedicate themselves to the production of wine. The estate, which is situated below the extinct volcano of Monte Amiata and directly above the Romanesque abbey of Sant’Antimo, enjoys one of the most magnificent views within the Val d’Orcia.
The property covers a total of 52 ha, approximately 130 acres, of which 15 ha of Sangiovese vines grouped in one unique vineyard, entirely classified Brunello di Montalcino. The age of the vines, the soil in which they grow and the southern aspect of the property combine to confer unique organoleptic qualities and longevity to the wines.
Harald Schwarz, who until recently has run the company in association with his parents, has now passed the day to day management of the estate to his son Fabian, a graduate of the prestigious San Michele all’Adige Institute, who has himself worked full time at La Magia since 2005.
