Liguria Italy wines

Tenuta Maffone – Wine producer – Cod. VI020

A small piece of land, among steep wooded slopes, a magical place where the tradition of wine and olive oil is the gift of Mother Nature to men, who have been working it with passion among these slopes. In this part of Liguria, Italy, where the sea breeze blows on the vines and the mountains become smoother, there are wines like Vermentino and Pigato coming from ancient traditions. And here, in the of Imperia, Bruno and Eliana lead a family business that embodies the story of a little corner of Liguria. The winery has been founded in 2009 when Bruno decided to quit his job to devote himself to ancient vineyards: a courageous choice that have changed both their lives for the joy of many winelovers.

Wine ProductionVini Maffone wines

This small company is located in Valle Arroscia, 500 m. asl, over the Ligurian See, a unique terroir for the cultivation of vines, a more difficult viticulture made with few mechanical means and still with many hours of man’s work. This extremely favorable climate, hot and dry during the day and very cool at night, with high temperature excursions gives the wines unique scents. The company has chosen to cultivate following tradition as much as possible: herbicides are banned and since 2019 is in organic conversion.

 

harvesting grapes in ItalyThis change has been possible thanks to very low percentages of sulphites and an excellent quality of grapes, cultivated in fresh and windy vineyards without molds dangerous for the production. All the vineyards are long-lived: from 40/50 years for Pigato, up to over 100 years for Ormeasco vines. We are talking about a native grape grown in the restricted area of Imperia. These Italian wines have been awarded in many occasions as excellent product coming from an unique terroir, that’s why they deserve a special tasting.
