The agricultural company was founded in 1993, by Ivan Giuliani, who inherited the farm previously purchased in the 1930s from his grandfather. The spark for this profession was ignited after 1995. At the end of his military service in Friuli, in the midst of vineyards and winemakers who passed on to him their attachment to their land and the best winemaking techniques, Ivan decided that this would be the metier of his life. It is located in Fosdinovo, in the province of Massa, in the northernmost tongue of Tuscany. The company covers about 20 hectares located between Luni, Candia, Cinque Terre and Lunigiana. The harvest is carried out manually and late, so that the grapes achieve a perfect balance between sugars, acidity, polyphenols and aromas. It is wonderful to know that the vines, as many as 8500 per hectare, are planted in this way to make them compete with each other so that the search for food takes place ever deeper. The plant will be stronger and less in need of care.
The vineyards located in the municipality of Fosdinovo at 70-200 metres a.s.l. are on soils rich in minerals and based on grey clay schists that limit its production by favouring the preservation of the skin, which is its weak point. Yields per hectare do not exceed 80 quintals. Harvesting, which is manual, takes place around mid-September, avoiding the Atlantic disturbances that would impair quality. Grapes are received by gravity, using treadmills. Classic and semi-carbonic macerations, with low-temperature fermentations in cement vats, are intended to respect the fruit and tannin purity. Fulling is done by hand and racking by gravity. This is followed by refining on its lees for 8 months with bottling in July. This is followed by bottling in glass, with release between 12 and 15 months after harvest. About 30,000 bottles are produced each year.
