Description

The PietraNova estate lies in one of the most prestigious winegrowing areas of Tuscany: Bolgheri DOC. The beautiful building dates back to 1698, when it was given the name ‘Casa al Piano’ by Giodo Alberto della Gherardesca. In 2013 the farm estate was bought by Franco Pravettoni and was renamed PietraNova: Pietra (stone) in homage to the estate’s history and importance, Nova (new) as a symbol
of rebirth and new beginnings.
The territory is sheltered from the winter winds by the ridge of hills that run parallel to the coast, while in summer the land enjoys refreshing winds from the western Tyrrhenian Sea. This proximity to the sea favours the production of quality wines, as is demonstrated in Bordeaux, the twinned city with Bolgheri. The very best vineyards are found between Bolgheri and Castegnato, at the foothills of the mountains and on the Castagnato plain, facing the sea. In the months of August and September in particular, the refreshing winds and temperature fluctuation between day and night cause the slow and gradual maturing of grapes, helping
to maintain the correct acidity and develop exceptional flavour.
