“Laura di Collobiano uses a low level of intervention in the whole winemaking process to highlight the terroir.”
The soils in Toscana are formed from Pliocene and Pleistocene marine sediments, and from Quaternary alluvial and lacustrine deposits. The region is quite hilly, progressing inward to the Apennine Mountains. Here, many vineyards are planted on the higher elevations of the hillsides to benefit from a cooler weather. The soils composition lie mostly on clay, with a great level of nutrients and organic matter.
History / Ethos
Tenuta Di Valgiano is a 40 Hectares estate located between the Apennines and the Mediterranean cost in the north of Tuscany. 16 Hectares are dedicated to the production of wine where Sangiovese plays a major role, supplemented with either Merlot or Syrah or both (depending on the vintage). This terrace-planted domain is perched 250 meters above sea level. The Mediterranean weather combined with clay, limestone-clay, and sandy soils yield unique expressions of vines and terroir.
