Very often, due to a curious game of accents, we speak erroneously of La Magìa farm instead of La Màgia, as this ancient estate was originally called. Its name could very probably derive from magione which, in turn, derives from Maison, home, since here there was historically a post station, a refuge for travelers and pilgrims. When you let your gaze slip over the valley where the ancient monastery of Sant ’Antimo rises, just below the hill of the farm, you really have a magical vision and you can feel the sacredness of the place. It is not difficult to imagine how the Schwarz family, forty years ago, was so impressed by it that they decided to change their lives and put their roots here

In the press
"La Magia was founded by a northern Italian family who moved to Tuscany in the Seventies and now make beautiful wines there. The joy of Rosso di Montalcino is that you can be drunk young -it makes a glamorous accompaniment to a meaty bowl of pasta or amatriciana with a side of parmesan sprouts." Victoria Moore, The Telegraph, 40 cracking wines for Christmas
"La Magia's 2016 Rosso di Montalcino delivers frank and genuine aromas of plump cherry and dark plum. There's a lot of ripe and juicy primary fruit to keep your attention. The wine's simple approach and bright acidity make this a perfect choice for wood oven pizza with smoked mozzarella toppings." Monica Larner - The Wine Advocate
