about this subregion

Nestled in the heart of Italy, the Valdinievole DOC is a testament to the intricate interplay between nature and viticulture. This wine-producing region boasts a diverse and fertile landscape, with a climate that strikes a harmonious balance between Mediterranean warmth and the fresh breezes characteristic of its hilly terrain. It's this unique environment that plays a pivotal role in the maturation of the grapes, ensuring they burst with flavor and aromatic complexity.

Two red grape varieties dominate the vineyards of Valdinievole: Canaiolo Nero and Sangiovese. Canaiolo Nero is cherished for its soft tannins and aromatic profile, often contributing delicate floral and berry nuances to the wines. Sangiovese, on the other hand, is a grape with a storied Italian legacy. It offers wines a structure, deep color, and a profile replete with red fruits, earthy tones, and sometimes, a hint of spice.

But it's not just about reds. The Valdinievole's white grape compositions majorly revolve around Trebbiano. This grape variety brings a lively acidity and fresh, citrus-driven character to the wines, making them incredibly versatile for pairing with a range of dishes.

In essence, the Valdinievole DOC is more than just a denomination of controlled origin. It's a celebration of a region's unique environmental gifts and the age-old traditions of its winemakers, brought together to produce wines that are as evocative as they are exquisite.
