Fattoria Viticcio Bere Toscana IGT 2009
Founded in 1960 by Lucio and Franca Landini, the Viticcio estate still stands above the picturesque town of Greve, in the heart of the Chianti Classico region. Their focus is to produce high-quality wines worthy of an international clientele, while at the same time respecting the traditions and viticulture of the region. This focus remains the same today under the direction of the second generation, Alessandro Landini. The estate comprises of more than 70 acres of vines, all of which are farmed organically. Additionally, 17 of those acres are farmed biodynamically. Alessandro strongly believes that in order to produce high-quality wines you must first respect the land in which the vines are planted. The wines of Viticcio represent an important combination of traditional, time-honored techniques with modern-day technology and respect for the environment.
