The vine that has come to represent the Colli Piacentini region actually comes from the Peloponnese. Knowing the details of its story is not that important. It is enough to know that this wine, rooted in our province centuries ago, is a multifaceted white that brings with it a variety of flavors.
The aroma of Mediterranean herbs combines with the spontaneity of elderberry and the sweetness of white flowers to form a full-bodied drink without equal. As usual, Luretta proposes an unusual version of Malvasia Aromatica di Candia: instead of light and sparkling, firm and intense.
This is the only way to respect the rich character of this very special grape variety.
I Nani e le Ballerine
You know how they say you can never have enough of a good thing? For us, with Sauvignon Blanc it is just like that. But what does “Sauvignon Blanc” mean exactly anyway? Forget the clichés, the appearances, the obvious connotations.
I Nani e le Ballerine is exotic fruit, minerality, freshness. Only creativity, here, is typical. It is hard to imagine that to best represent our territory an international grape variety was needed. Unbelievable, and yet that’s exactly what happened. Delicate while full-bodied, linked to the land, but with the ambition to emerge.
I Nani e le Ballerine surprises the drinker with a fresh and mineral palate, followed by an aftertaste full of exotic hints which invite to the second glass. And then the third. And the fourth.
We don’t speak much of our Le Rane, but that’s not because we have something to hide. A wine that needs little introduction: winner of a Sole Luigi Veronelli award and third-best sweet wine in Italy at the 2017 Sommelier Wine Awards, this is an elegant wine designed to bring to the table the characteristics of a grape variety that has always made us proud of our province.
Le Rane represents the sweetest side of our Colli Piacentini. A wine made from the region’s signature white grape, Malvasia Aromatica di Candia, which combines exceptional acidity with the full, floral aroma of the varietal we are most fond of.
And thanks to the high acidity, the residual sugar between 130 and 160 grams per liter becomes complementary to the Mediterranean scents, the hints of saffron and dried flowers that emerge when you approach the glass to the nose.
Winner of 9 medals at Château des Ravatys’ Chardonnay du Monde competition, Selin dl’Armari is a 100% Chardonnay that originated in a corner of white earth nestled in the hills of Piacenza.
An area certainly not renowned for its enological production, but so rich in potential as to push us to invest time and energies in an inimitable Cru. When the project started, in 1992, the idea was to use the calcareous marls of our territory to create a white wine that would be elegant and rich in structure, just like the most famous French Chardonnays. At that time it was a dream to think about producing a Burgundy-style wine right here in Piacenza.
However, after almost a decade of refinement, international recognition and the first of a long series of medals began to arrive.
Inspired by the long tradition of Italian Vin Santi, Nevermore reinterprets Malvasia Aromatica di Candia through a unique aging process.
Drying on the vine allows the grapes to maintain a very high concentration of flavor that is transformed into a wine full of character through slow pressing and 8 years of aging in oak, cherry, chestnut, and acacia. Aromas of spice and tropical fruit that overflow into dried apricot and hazelnut, sweet palate that develops into hints of date, fig and saffron.
The perfect balance between sweetness and acidity, ideal for complementing dry pastries.
