Tenuta la Marchesa
The villa 'La Marchesa' after which this estate is named was built in 1750 by the owners at the time, a Genovese banking family, in order to keep their daughter happy for her forthcoming wedding day. It is now in the hands of the Giulini family, who have installed a brand new wine cellar with the most up to date vinification techniques, whilst maintaining the character of the original villa. Situated a mere 40 km from the sea, the soil on the estate is a clay/limestone mix and greatly influences the character of its wines. You can visit their website here.
Oenotria the Greeks called Italy - the 'land of vines' - and they'd know as they took the first vines to the peninsular, where they thrive to this day in every region of the country. Here's a selection from across Italy, focused on the classics from Piedmont in the north to Sicily in the south. Of course there is some Prosecco for bubbles, along with the new pretender to the Italian bubbles crown, Franciacorta.
