The owner of this enchanting private estate in Gaiole in Chianti is called Roberto Pucci, a dynamic entrepreneur just into his sixties from Prato, who having fallen in love with the marvellous Chianti area some years ago decided to dedicate all his resources to the production of wines with a great character
Located in Valgatara, in the heart of Valpolicella Classico, the Luigi Righetti estate is small to mid-sized, family run winery. Since 1909, when Angelo Righetti first earned a reputation as an outstanding winemaker, the family has focussed on producing quality wines offering extremely good value. Righetti's wines exhibit an exceptional balance between fruit, wood aging, acidity and alcohol. The result is a line of wines that have good aging potential, but are available for early consumption as well. The most exciting tradition to evolve from the Veneto region is the process used to dry grapes prior to pressing. Amarone and "Campolieti", the ripasso Valpolicella, have traditionally been the products to benefit from this process.
