Since the 1990s, the team of Laura di Collobiano, Moreno Petrini & winemaker/viticulturalist Saverio Petrilli have breathed new life into this stunning 16th century Tuscan estate, Valgiano. 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 & 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.
