Drinkability and eclecticism from Lucca
Simone Stefanini has been running an estate that produces both olive oil and wine for just over 20 years. It is situated in the province of Lucca, more precisely a stone’s throw from the medieval hamlet of Montecarlo. The estate has 17 hectares of olive groves planted with the province’s typical varieties: 65% Frantoio, 15% Moraiolo, 15% Leccino and 5% Pendolino, which is the pollinator. The seven hectares of vineyards are cultivated with both white and red wine grapes, in line with the blending philosophy typical of this area. The red varietals are Merlot, Cabernet, Ciliegiolo, Canaiolo and Sangiovese Grosso, while the whites are Chardonnay, Pinot Bianco, Sauvignon, Roussanne and Trebbiano. Since 1995, the estate has adhered to the Region of Tuscany’s agro-environmental program (Reg./CEE 2078/92) to control and reduce the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
