GIOVANNI MAZZONI

Sales and Marketing Director

He was born and lives in Florence, having completed his studies he worked a decade in a well known multinational in the sector of the energie. Attends, as hobby, courses for sommelier and soon his passion for the world of wine, determine its new turning professional: a long career as an Export Manager in one of the most prestigious Bolgheri's wineries. The visit to Podere Forte, the quality of its wines, the generosity of the people and the deep passion have conquered him and at the beginning of 2014 he have decided to come in the Val d'Orcia. In a press conference in Tokyo, a Japanese journalist asked him curiously: "...Why this professional turning from the engineering to the wine? Giovanni replied with a smile: "Well, do you have ever tried to compare the elegance and complexity of the bouquet of Sangiovese, respect .... the exhaust fumes of a refinery?"
