Excellent concentration, which is already visible in its deep ruby colour with crimson reflections, an indication of youth. The intense bouquet is reminiscent of spices and ripe fruit. Rich and full bodied on the palate with intense fruity aromas which give the wine its excellent enduring characteristics. The fresh structure is supported by the good content of mature, balanced tannins. A very pleasant wine that gives immediate pleasure and can improve over the next seven years.

Climate On the Appenine slopes descending down to ghe flatlands of Lucca, the lands of the towns of Camigliano, Marlia, Segromigno and San colombano, facing prevalently south, at an altitude between 120 and 190 m. a.s.l.
Composition of the land Land formed during the last glaciations of the Pleistocene epoch, when mammoths and Neanderthal man disappeared, about 2 milion years ago, alluviums of sandstone or calcareous marl exposed by melted ice.
Harvest Hand picked in small boxes, grapes are sorted on tables delibering directcly into the wooden bins, without pumps.
Vinification Plunged by hand or by foot in the gentlest way possible, the grapes are accompanied through the process by delicate plunging and sometimes pumps over. In these conditions, 10/15 days of maceration are sufficient for a full extraction of the aromas and quality tannis. After racking, the wine is allowed to briefly settle. Then, thtough graviry, it enters lightly toasted Frenk oak barrels, 5% new, where it completes malolatic fermentation.
Aging Racking follows natural rhythms with air compressed rather than pumps. Agter 12 months wine is assembled in cement vat for another 6 months before bottling.

Valgiano

From this winery:
The Tenuta di Valgiano is a farm since 1500. In 1993 Moreno Petrini bought the estate Valgiano, with the only project to make a simple wine to be sold in the year to maintain the property. Was Valgiano to teach that here you could make a great wine. ...
