HISTORY

Love for Tuscany leds us in one of the world's most renowned area for art and typical products.About in 2005 we took the opportunity to purchase an estate near the medieval village Bolgheri , an area cleraly vocated to viticolture. Villanoviana was born from the intuition that these first vineyards would achieve in the future our lifetime dream: making the wine 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 vineyard and for people who love good drink convinced us to propose a pure product obtained through traditional methods of Organic Viticulture. A dream finally became reality.

PASSIONS

Respect for this land and its traditions accompanies our work from vineyard to winery. Infact we think that, as humans, also wine, oil and vinegar have its own personality that expresses itself at its best in a natural and spontaneous way. Our mission is characterized from a not interventionist method, complying with the natural cycles, without the use of any chemical products. Thanks to constant search for quality of the grapes, we are increasingly convinced that the quality of wine and health are closely linked. The authenticity of the winery work, minimizing interventions, allows us to pursue our goal, to produce a pure wine, most authentic expression of our sites.


IMENEO

Mythological nature of a wine that inspires pleasure and joy of living. Imeneo was the son of Bacchus and Venus, the god involved, during the most important ceremonies and weddings to asking him protection for marriage. Inspired by this legend, we have created an important wine to accompany the most pleasant and joyful moments and we have called it Imeneo for its personality so similar to God of marriage. Ruby red, intense, of mellow flavour, well structured with fresh acidity and smooth tannins in balance with the structure. Notes of red fruits, vanilla and spices. Great combined with typical Tuscan dishes, superb for meetings or any special events .

Bolgheri Superiore

SANT'UBERTO

In the countryside of Bolgheri, between Sant’Uberto and Le Ferrugini, vineyards reflect the nature of these lands . Here, the vines of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot grow and give life to a Superior Bolgheri recognizable among many others. This "Real Bolgherese" could only be called with the name of the land it belongs to. Bolgheri 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 smelling it you can 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.
