The winery Terre Apuane was born in Carrara, in the heart of the Apuan Alps with the 2011 vintage.
BETWEEN MOUNTAINS AND SEA
Carrara has already established itself in the world for its fine white marble, but not all. Its mountain peaks reach 2000 meters above sea level and look at the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea reached in only half an hour away by car. A combination of environmental unique.
And it is here that we find the company Terre Apuane with its cellar situated in the locality Castelpoggio, buried for over 3 \ 4 at an altitude of 700 meters is the highest winery in Tuscany if not in all our reality Italian wine; here with a constant temperature its DOC wines in his native varieties are produced and aged with care and passion.
The grapes come from two vineyards: the Pearl of recent plant and Form High, vineyard dating back to Roman times. Both facing south west, overlooking the sea and their processing is almost entirely manual, this configuration due to their impervious where viticulture takes on an aspect of all heroic and where each plant e’unica and as such is reared with care looking to respect its nature, excluding the use of herbicides and minimizing the use of treatments fitosanitari.Un this ambitious project undertaken by Emanuele Crudeli who wants to restore value and rightful place in this small but precious cultivation area of DOC wines.
