This (practically) indigenous Tuscan grape draws its richness from the warm and sunny climate of the area and allows to obtain long-lived and pleasantly scented wines.
The Vermentino vineyards are those closest to the sea. When the grapes begin to have an almost brown colour, the ripening controls begin, in order to guarantee their completeness. Harvesting is done by hand, then a soft pressing is carried out, without destemming. The must, after a brief period of decanting, ferments at a controlled temperature.
Bottling takes place at the beginning of the year. The nose has sweet scents reminiscent of honey while the palate denotes good acidity and a pleasant structure.
Le Marze White 2017, Chardonnay, Viognier, Greco
The wine grapes begin to ripen in the second half of August and are deliberately taken beyond their physiological maturity in order to obtain greater complexity. The grapes are harvested by hand using boxes at the beginning of September. The grapes are then destemmed and gently pressed. At the end of fermentation the wine is left on its own yeasts which are periodically mixed in order to extract from the wine greater organoleptic complexity. Bottling takes place towards the end of March and the wine then matures in the bottle until May. On the nose, memories of fresh apples and acacia honey. A pleasantly round taste that gives the wine a certain significance.
The Riesling grapes were planted in the northernmost area of the estate, where the good daily temperature range favours ideal aromatic integrity. The nose has hints of dried apple pleasantly blended with notes of aromatic herbs and is consistent in the mouth with a good freshness and a minerality that gives elegance to the wine.
Cabernet Franc 2016
The terroir of the winery is perfect for the maturation of Cabernet Franc, which presents a complex nose, with intense notes of red fruits and plum, rose and violet, then balsamic scents and to close clove and black pepper. The taste is broad and enveloping, with silky tannins and a very long finish.
Brunetti 2014, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese
The grapes after ripening under the sun of Maremma, create a wine suitable for aging 12 months in French oak barrels.
Brunetti is a wine of intense colour, with a great structure. During ageing it develops particular organoleptic characteristics such as an intense bouquet with scents of cherry and plum and a slight hint of liquorice.
Le Marze 2014, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese
Harvested by hand, it is aged in French oak barriques for 12 months. On the nose the blueberry is in evidence compared to the universe of red fruits present, then rose, black pepper and clove on the finish. Consistent in the mouth where the acidic shoulder is a counterbalance to its softness.

As Veronelli called it, Luigi Brunetti, the founder of the company, is a force of Nature.
After leaving Mondatoriccio, Calabria, at a very young age to hone his passion for quality cuisine, Luigi gained experience in some of the best restaurants in Western Europe.
Italy, Switzerland, France, Spain and Germany are the places where he has worked. A nice resume!
And it was in Germany that in 1965 he established himself as a top chef and opened his own restaurant in Neulsenburg.
He becomes a successful entrepreneur but the nostalgia for Italy is great, and after 20 years, in 1985, decides to purchase today's Azienda Agricola Elisabetta (6 Km as the crow flies from Bolgheri), which takes its name from the Wife.
Together with his son Leonardo, in 1990 he built the winery, for then start producing quality wines in 1993.
Its products are the result of a viticulture that respects the environment and the territory, to which they are deeply linked.
The winery covers an area of 25 hectares, bred purely to international vines, but also to Sangiovese.
The land is clayey calcareousperfect for making great wines, especially if correlated with the crazy microclimate of the area.
