Andrea Valiani is a wine industry veteran of more than 40 years but only started his latest venture, with his son Marco, in 2016. The family start-up currently produces only three wines from 10 hectares of vineyards but has already established distribution in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Hong Kong and now Canada.

The plan over the next few years for Andrea and Marco is to add more vineyard holdings, focusing on indigenous varietals and winemaking techniques and styles traditional to Tuscany, like the Governo all’uso Toscana.

Tasting Notes

The drying of the grapes results in a densely coloured and flavoured wine that’s very approachable when young. Full, rich and creamy with lashings of sweet blackcurrant, black plum and dark cherry, with subtle wafts of garrigue, wild herbs and vanilla, the palate is smooth and long with sweet, melt-in-the-mouth tannins. 

Method

A blend of 70% Sangiovese with 30% Merlot, all harvested by hand.  The wine is made in the traditional Tuscan “governo” method which is, similar (but slightly different) to the ripasso wines of the Veneto.  Grapes are harvested and partially dried (appassimento process) then the juice of those dried grapes is added to the the must (juice) of the regular harvested grapes and fermenting ensues.  Each varietal is fermented separately, the wine is then blended and spends three months in French oak barriques before it is bottled.
