History of wine
The wine from vineyards in the vicinity of Lucca, which are cultivated using organic and biodynamic methods. The vines were planted in 2000. Most of the wine (90%) is fermented and then aged for a year in steel tanks, 10% - in large botti of Slavonian oak. The wine is not filtered, sulfur dioxide is used minimally.
The vineyards Fattoria Camigliano belonged in the XV century to the famous ruler of Lucca Paolo Guinigi, whose portrait is on modern wine labels of Camigliano. Today the farm belongs to Tommaso Turchi, who in 2004 turned all the vineyards into biodynamics. In 2013 Tommaso invited Cipriano Barsanti as an oenologist-consultant, a famous Tuscan follower of biodynamics and “naturalist”. In Camigliano they only make two wines - red Nero del Gobbo from a classic region blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Syrah and white wine from 100% Vermentino. The winery produces only about 6 thousand bottles of red and about 3 thousand bottles of white wine per year.
