Discover the excellence in Tuscany

Born and raised in Florence where my family has lived for generations, I represent a few, well-curated Tuscan boutique wineries, creating bespoke wine-tasting events since 2010. For my portfolio, I select only premium small boutique vineyards with limited quantities of exceptional wines like Brunello di Montalcino, Super Tuscan, Chianti Riserva, Chianti Gran Selection and others.

Experience wine like few in the world have experienced it.
Wine is not simply a business for me—it is my passion. For this reason, I work only with wineries for whom wine is their passion also.
With me, you will experience only hand-made wines that you won’t find in stores or on restaurant wine lists. This is because I work only with Tuscan wineries in the region’s best wine-making zones, and only with those that produce forty thousand bottles per year or fewer.

Because these wineries cater not to the mass market but to lovers of wine, they can attend to every step of the wine-making process, from the planting of the vine and the growing and picking of the grape to that almost-indescribable moment when the finished wine finally reaches your palate.
These are wines made by artisansartists of their craft—who view their wines as a reflection of their souls and who, for that reason, will never release a wine unless it is of the highest quality. Such wines, like great works of art, are necessarily rare. Let me be your window into this rare and wonderful world of the most exquisite wines from my beloved Tuscany.If you are already a wine connoisseur, your love of wine will only growif you are not yet a connoisseur, I think you will become one.


When you join me in the experience of a wine tasting in my native Tuscany, you will receive a combination of two things that you will find nowhere else:
Wines of the very highest quality; and A personal connection with the winery owner, so that you will receive individual attention to your specific tastes and the highest level of customized service.



You can experience Tuscany even in the comfort of your home surrounded by your friends, because I will bring Tuscany to you. Since 2010, I have been curating and organizing private tastings  at homes throughout the United States. Just as though you were in Tuscany, you will experience wines of the very highest quality from the Tuscany’s best wineries, available only through a personal connection with the wineries’ owners. I promise you, for a couple of hours, you feel like you have come to Tuscany.


Spend some time with me and enjoy la dolce vita. We will have a beautiful time together.

“My family and I first met Massimiliano (Max) twenty years ago.  It is impossible to utilize Max’s outstanding and professional services without also becoming his friend.  Here are just a few reasons why we have been working with Max continuously for two decades:

  • He has introduced us to some of the finest wines (red and white) in Tuscany;
  • We (and many of our closest friends) have enjoyed several professional and delighful wine tasting events with Max in Italy and in the U.S.;
  • We survived the COVID-19 lock-down in the U.S. drinking wines shipped to us (during the pandemic) by Max;
  • He and his family have taken us to the best local restaurants in Firenze (the types of places where there is no written menu!); and
  • Most important, if your daughter becomes stranded in Firenze during a once-in-one-hundred-years storm, he will personally make sure she is safe and has everything she needs.”
