Tenuta di Valgiano

Tuscany, Italy

Tenuta di Valgiano

Since the 1990s, the team of Laura di Collobiano, Moreno Petrini and winemaker/viticulturalist Saverio Petrilli have breathed new life into this stunning 16th century Tuscan estate, Valgiano. Moreno Petrini comes from the Milan shoe industry, his partner Laura Di Collobiano from a Turin family and used to sell luxury yachts. Together they traveled the world until they discovered a run-down vineyard with a Renaissance villa in the hills above Lucca. As part of the Colline Lucchesi DOC overlooking Lucca, Valgiano is blessed with a mix of both limestone & sandstone soils, near perfect aspect, & a constant stream of bristlingly-pure water which spills off Monte Barbona rising nearly a 1000 metres above them. This near perfect terroir encouraged Valgiano to convert to organic viticulture in 1997 & to biodynamics in 2002.

Traditional methods are used in the cellar, employing a mix of stainless-steel & used French oak, while technological interference is kept to a minimum. The objective is to produce, in the simplest possible way, wines that are an expression of the place in which they are cultivated. The grape varieties cultivated here are also quite independent. In addition to the typical varieties of Tuscany, there have also been French varieties here since Napoleon, because around 200 years ago he established the Lucchean Republic, which was dependent on France. The red grape varieties Sangiovese - here called Sangioveto - was historically always dominant, but especially in this area was always supported by the presence of Syrah and Merlot instead of Colorino, Ciliegiolo and Canaiolo.
