Partners and inheritors of local land and traditions, Beatrice Lucangeli and Stefano di Laconi started to convert their estate to quality viticulture in the early 1990’s. From then they have slowly developed their 28 ha of vineyards to be an exemplary source for local varieties. Yields are controlled and all harvest is by hand. This bounty is handed on to their state of the art winery for simple, careful processing.
Montepulciano and Sangiovese work together in different proportions for both of Le Marche’s signature reds. Montepulciano leads with rich, red plum and cherries and Sangiovese does its part with structure and a savoury finish. A classically versatile ‘Italian’ red for many uses.
