The Tenuta di Valgiano estate is located near Lucca in the northern part of Tuscany. The farm consists of 16 hectares of vineyards lying on a terrace of pebbles and clay alberese rocks. By preference, the Sangiovese is grown along the edge of the alberese soil, that allows it to maintain its aromatic properties and at the same time achieve good structure. The clayey soil is where the Merlot is cultivated and it is able to maintain its fineness and elegance, despite the heaviness of the soil. On the sandstone pebbles, it is only the Syrah that can achieve structure as well as perfume. The vines are between 6 and 50 years old and there are 5700 plants per hectare. Organic and biodynamic farming have been adopted: careful management of the soil through seeding leguminous, gramineae and aromatic plants, sensitive use of tillage, clay, copper and sulphur treatments only, biological action against parasites, and sensitive management of the leaf canopy. Analyses are carried out on the deep layers of soil in order to gain a better understanding of the natural vine-climate-soil balance and therefore ensure that this balance is maintained.
The estate is more of a farm than a vineyard as Laura farms bees, 3000 olive trees, and plants which they use to instill their biodynamic practices. Tenuta di Valgiano is certified by ICEA (organic) and by Demeter (biodynamic). Along with wine, Tenuta di Valigiano also bottles honey and olive oil.
