HISTORY

The love of Tuscany led us in one of the most renowned in the world of art and the products of his land.

The Villanova born that way, with a passion for good wine and the desire to achieve what has always been the dream of a lifetime: making the wine while respecting the traditions of the past. The return to the roots of our culture and the memory of the first farmers who worked this land to make wine, convinced us to call our company drawing inspiration from the Villanoviana civilization, the ancestors of the Etruscans. Respect for life and for people who love good drink laid upon us to propose a pure product obtained through traditional methods of Organic Viticulture. What had always been a dream turned into reality.

Villanoviana Passions

PASSIONS

Respect for the land and its traditions accompany us craftsmanship the work of the vineyard and winery allowing us to create three wines as an expression of their land of origin: Imeneo, Teia, Rosso passione. Just as each of us has its own identity and originality think the wine, the result of the interaction between man and nature, it is also equipped with a unique personality that is expressed in the most spontaneous and natural. Our philosophy coincides with our passions, grown with dedication and respect for the work of farmers. With the greatest respect to an area highly suited, complying with the natural cycles, without the use of any chemical products. Thanks to the continuous search for quality of the grapes, we are increasingly convinced that the quality of a wine and health are closely linked. The authenticity for the winery work, minimizing interventions, allows us to pursue our goal, to get a pure wine, most authentic expression of our sites.


IMENEO

The mythology nature of a wine that inspires the pleasure and joy of living. Imeneo was the son of Bacchus and Venus, the god invoked, during the most important ceremonies and during the wedding procession, and bodes well for the protection of marriage. Inspired by this legend, we have created an important wine to accompany the most pleasant moments and joyful, calling Imeneo for his character so similar to the God of marriage. Ruby red, intense, mellow flavor, well structured with fresh acidity and smooth tannins in balance with the structure. Notes of red fruits, vanilla and spices. Great for pairing with typical Tuscan dishes, superb for meetings or any special events.

SANT'UBERTO

In the countryside of Bolgheri, between Sant’Uberto and Le Ferrugini, the vineyards reflecting the nature of these lands extend. Here, the vines of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot grow and give life to a Superior Bolgheri recognizable among many others. This "Vero Bolgherese" could only be called with the name of the land it belongs to. The Borgheri Superiore Sant’Uberto is naturally produced from manually selected grapes and with separate vinifications. It’s produced after two stages of fermentation and the second one takes place in French oak barrels. The colour is deep ruby red and if you smell it you perceive fruity aromas of cherry and plum followed by spicy notes of black pepper and nutmeg. The last sensation is a hint of chocolate to finish with pleasant blond tobacco references. Tannin is sweet and silky and then smooth and wide.
