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.
Expressive aromas of plum, morello cherry, blackberry and mulberry, rounded out by baking spice. The palate is rich with concentrated plum and spice, the acidity keeps the wine from feeling heavy, the layers of flavours carry onto a long satisfying finish.
Made from a blend of hand harvested Merlot and Sangiovese. After the hand harvest, the grapes are quickly taken to the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in large wood at controlled temperatures with the addition of some dried grapes (governo). The fermentation is followed by a few months of aging on the fine lees before the wine is finally bottled. The aging in wooden barrels is followed by a considerable bottle aging, which makes this red wine even more complex.
