“It was 1970 when Vasco Lastrucci, my father, decided to buy the farm adjacent to the village, Lecci and Brocchi from the parish priest of Villa A Sesta. The name tells of soils where holm oaks were born spontaneously which, once cut, the stumps of wood called rotters were left on the ground.
The main crop cultivated was wheat, but my father thought that soil so red, stony and rich in minerals could suit the vine; he planted the first vineyard and vinified the grapes after about 5 years, he got a scented, fruity and very special wine. These results encouraged him and so came the other vineyard plots.
The Chianti Classico product, for years and until 2010, has been sold in bulk and sold to the most illustrious producers in the area.
With the 2011 harvest, the farm’s management has passed to me, and with my husband Giancarlo and my still very young son Giovanni, I started this beautiful adventure.
With great courage, supported by my mother and my father, we took the lead of the company and decided not to sell more wine in tanks; On August 1, 2012 came the first bottle of Chianti Classico DOCG 2010, the result of immense commitment, hard work, ideas and…. so many dreams! So many!
The label, like the others, born from the hands of two Chiantigian artists, Francesco Lorenzetti and Rita Frasca Odorizzi, portrays my portrait as the beginning of a new path.
This Chianti Classico is a traditional wine, simple and very related to its terroir and to the public.
With the first months of 2014 the first small exports started and also came good reviews from journalists, sommeliers and industry experts; the 2012 vintage is considered among the best Chianti Classico of Berardenga at AIS in Milan.
At the Chianti Classico of the year, we added a Riserva, dedicated to my father “Il Chiorba”; A year aged in large oak barrels, the same wine that Wine Enthusiast has awarded 91 points and that has also impressed Monica Larner.
In the same years, the idea of a white wine was born, in particular: we sifted our best Sangiovese grapes, harvested early in the morning and we get a product highly appreciated in Italy and abroad: some journalists write about it and call it “A white Sangiovese in the land of the great reds”.
Its name SANGIO is born from the union of the vine from which the Sangiovese comes, and of GIOvanni, my son, who since he was young, engages in company; The back tag shows his portrait.
Wine, dessert wine, olive oil, grappa and spumante.
