It would be impossible to pick just one wine, so instead, we have created a Tenuta Di Valgiano wine box. A special selection of each cuvée to give you the best overview of what the estate has to offer.
The flagship Tenuta Di Valgiano is made from 60% Sangiovese with 40% made up from Cigliegiolo, Canaiolo, Colorino, Barbera, Tazzelenghe, Syrah and Merlot which is the same blend as the Palistorti Colline Lucchesi (rosso) - but here the vines are older, and the soil is from the pre-glacial era, dating back some 60 million years! Tenuta Di Valgiano is the clock of time in the wine because it has huge ageing potential.
The Palistorti bianco is predominantly Trebbiano, with some Vermentino, Malvasia and Grechetto. The two hours of skin contact gives a little more character to the Trebbiano. Laura recommends pairing this wine with anchovies’ bread and butter.
The team at Valgiano like to match the following qualitative terms with the Valgiano wines: Consistency, softness, viscosity, vivacity, exuberance, texture, minerality, length, aromatic persistency and complexity.
