 There are very few wine appellations in Italy that actually span more than one region.  Colli di Luni is one.  Comprised of a very narrow spit of undulating coastline, it starts on the Ligurian Riviera and ends in Tuscany, just north of Pisa. On either side are the Apennine mountains and the Ligurian sea. While the savory, fun reds of the Colli di Luni can approximate Chianti, albeit on a minor scale, it’s the whites that really stand out as they can boast all the rich fruit and texture one associates with warm, sunny Tuscany, but with the Ligurian coast’s crunchy saltiness and high level of finishing minerality.  With a cellar on the Ligurian side but vines that straddle both provinces (and in the Cinque Terre) lies Terenzuola, the small organic farm of the Giuliani family.


The Colli di Luni DOC is half in Liguria, half in Tuscany, and is one of the very few Italian DOCs that cover two regions. In this area, Terenzuola is particular because, unlike other producers, it is the only one that has all of its Vermentino vines on hills at 300-500 meters of altitude. Terenzuola's wines actually need a little time in the bottle to show their best and are able to age well for 3-4 years, improving their characteristics of elegance and sophistication. Its terrain is calcareous mixed with clay planted with high-density vineyards. Furthermore, the vineyards are at a high altitude which allows for a wide variation in temperature from day to night. All of these conditions give the wine a rare, highly mineral, and structured elegance.
