On inaccessible soils, beaten by the wind and brackish, the vineyards of Paradiso dei Conigli adapt to the different areas of the Giglio Island, characterized by different microclimates that influence the productions, and where viticulture becomes heroic in the defense and rediscovery of tradition island wine, recovering rare and indigenous red vines. In Lunigiana, on the other hand, on the border between Tuscany and Liguria, Terenzuola cultivates over 100-year-old vines, from the Cinque Terre to the territory of Candia on the Apuan Alps, defending its heroic historicity: born between the two wars, today it is at harvest n. 30, and everything still takes place manually due to the need to cultivate vineyards overlooking the sea, on the one hand, and perched in the mountains, on the other. But among the young realities that make the difference, there is also the “Majesty of the Formica” in Careggine, where biodynamic agriculture resists the slopes of the Sumbra, and where, not only are preserves produced by exploiting all the fruits of the earth, but With heroic will, a high altitude Riesling is also born and old vines, even centuries old, are recovered, located in Garfagnana. These are just some of the stories that come from “that part of Tuscany washed by the sea”, protagonist in the glasses of the “Preview of the Wines of the Tuscan Coast”, the review of the Great Crus of the Tuscan Coast, which returns in the edition n. 21, with 80 producers and over 400 labels, at the Real Collegio di Lucca (30 April-1 May) .
An event that combines tasting, experiences and history. On the contrary, many little stories of producers who make the earth their daily work, between agriculture and heroic viticulture. Realities that resist, that become custodians and guardians of an ancient knowledge, small but precious experiences that the Great Crus of the Tuscan Coast – which are born in the part of Tuscany between Massa, Lucca, Pisa, Livorno, Grosseto and in particular in a area under the influence of the Tyrrhenian Sea – promote and support. And that are told through the new vintages of their wines in the Preview at the Real Collegio, where the major local producers (from Collemassari and Grattamacco to Fattoria di Magliano, from Moris Farms to Poggio L’Apparita, from Sassotondo to Arrighi, from Campo to Sea in Batzella, from Podere Sapaio to Caiarossa, from Fattoria Varramista to I Giusti & Zanza, from Le Palaie to Tenuta di Ghizzano, from Tenute Lunelli to Tenuta Prima Pietra, from Usiglian del Vescovo to Tenuta del Buonamico, from Tenuta dello Scompiglio to Tenuta di Valgiano, among others) will guide professionals, enthusiasts and the curious on a journey through their labels: a long journey from the North to the South of Tuscany, capable of combining the great wines ambassadors of the territory in the world with many novelties of winemakers and young companies engaged daily in the search for quality and sustainability.
