Born in Tuscany, the juice of the Sangiovese grape runs in winemaker Federico Cerelliâ€™s veins. At home, there was always a bottle of Sangiovese on the table.?Federicoâ€™s favorite childhood snack, prepared by his grandmother, was a piece of bread moistened with wine and topped with a sprinkle of sugar. His grandfather had a hectare of vineyards and as a little boy Federico loved helping him. It seems that Federico was destined to be a winemaker. Since 2011, he has been Chief Winemaker at Castello di Gabbiano and the new Cavaliere dâ€™Oro project combines Federicoâ€™s Tuscan expertise with his experience and curiosity about other Italian winemaking regions.
