About The Producer, La Piana Capraia :
The organic farm La Piana Capraia is located on the island of Capraia, within the Tuscan Archipelago National Park. The area to which it belongs, called “Il Piano S. Stefano”, is a magical and uncontaminated place where aromas, sounds, colors, and traditions blend with ancient tastes and knowledge, in which time seems to have stopped. In fact, on the island, the Romans and Saracens lived at different times, and they are on a par with what is necessary for their livelihood. The landscape, guarded by the agricultural presence, is designed by the discontinuity of vine rows in the Mediterranean scrub, terracing, dry stone walls, ancient cisterns, and by native ornamental species such as oleander, rosemary, ancient rose; it is a perfect integration between quality agriculture, environmental protection and historical memory. From these 3.5 hectares planted in Aleatico and Vermentino wines are born today: a rosé of Aleatico, a passito of Aleatico and a Vermentino.
