Fior di Montalcino

The name of the Chironi family has its roots in Sardinia, a place where sheep farming is one of the main activities and that is where our history is born ... in the distant post-war period, grandfather Pietro Chironi, started working with fresh milk in a mountain-built wooden house, in which he kept all the equipment needed to make cheese; he gathered his children around the hearth and began to work explaining to them in detail every detail and every secret to produce an excellent cheese. In 1959 he moved to Buonconvento, in the company le Sale, formed by almost 100 hectares of arable land and 4 farms, a place where he decided to take root. It was the first Sardinian family to settle in the area. The main activity he practiced was breeding, followed by agriculture and it is thanks to his cheeses, naturally seasoned in the cellar under the farm, who managed to create something unique, which was handed down to the children and now to the grandchildren, with the added value of tradition and values, which distinguish the family's history. During the course of the year, we produce all the forages and all the corn, barley, broad beans, oats, triticale and soft wheat grains, necessary for feeding our animals, through cultivation methods that respect the well-being of man. , of the animal and the biodiversity of our territory.
