Gattaia Bianco IGT Toscana 2016
Terre di Giotto
Since 2006, the oenologist, biologist and winemaker Michele Lorenzetti is the owner of the farm Terre di Giotto, located on the Tuscan Apennines, more precisely in Gattaia, in the municipality of Vicchio del Mugello. It consists of 3 hectares of land cultivated with passion, only in biodynamic agriculture. Michele is a consultant in biodynamic viticulture for many Italian and foreign companies and this is his motto: "to restore fertility to the land and expression to plants. This is Biodynamics; a great opportunity for the farmer, his farm, his identity and his economy."
The highest vineyards emerge from the Mugello mists at a height ranging from 500 to 600 m a.s.l. (1650 to 1950 feet). The varieties cultivated there are Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Tempranillo, Trebbiano, Malvasia di Candia and 2000 plants from a mass selection from old vineyards in Loire by Mark Angeli.
Through biodynamics, which allows us to help and preserve nature, instead of transforming it in an intrusive way, Michele aims to create authentic and courageous flavors, far from homologation.

Vallone di Cecione
It was 1961 when the Anichini family moved into the Vallone farm, in the area called San Martino a Cecione. They were still years of sharecropping, so the family simply moved to that farm to look after it. At the end of the month the owner still came by to collect half of the harvest, or produces. The Anichini were already dedicated to the cultivation of vines and olive trees on another estate, at the Castle of Brolio in another area of the Chianti region.
At the beginning of the 1980s, a period in which the sharecropping system was already ending, the owner of the estate proposed to the father of the family Giuliano to stay and work as an employee. The idea, however, did not convince him, as he was at ease in the role of a sharecropper. The fact that he could no longer organize his time but had to submit to a fixed working schedule did not appeal to him.
A few years passed and the owner decided to put the farm up for sale. The family began to evaluate the purchase, despite being an economic effort that could hardly have been faced. Thanks to the offer of deferred payment and to be able to repay part of the debt in working hours, at a restaurant owned by him, the 'owner' convinced the Anichini’s to embark on the venture.
Those were years of hard work and enormous sacrifices, but as happens in nature, the efforts paid off. In fact, today the company is a small corner of paradise, immersed in the beautiful setting of the Conca d'Oro valley. Managed by the third son Francesco, who does not fail to pay homage to the work of the whole family and of the Chianti tradition, just look at the labels to understand. In a few years he led a transition from an almost subsistence agriculture, made up of mixed plants, to a type of production more in step with the times.
The wines are made from traditional grape varieties of the Chianti Classico area. In addition biodynamic agricultural methods make the wines even more linked to the territory they belong to.
Total area planted with vines: 4 hectares / 10 acres
Average annual company production: 20,000 bottles
