Grand Noir Toscana IGT

The "Phoenix" of the great historical vines, Grand Noir is a hybrid derived from a cross between Aramon and Petit Bouchet created in the early ‘900‘s. It‘s a color grape spread in France, almost disappeared from his country of origin. Through a search duration of over 15 years Castellani, in collaboration with the University of Pisa, has revived this vine again in the Tuscan hills of Poggio al Casone, near Pisa.
This great wine shows a ruby red color with violet hues, very fruity on the nose with hints of strawberry and wild fruits. Very spicy and complex, with elegant shades of black pepper and of Mediterranean balsamic herbs, has a refreshing body with velvety texture. The taste resembles some of the best Pinot Noir in Northern Italy.

Scientific research found a bug that was "untraceable"

img: visit: Scientific research found a bug that was  

It was since 1903 that it could not be found. It is a small insect, a Hymenopteran of the family of hover-flies (Hymenoptera, Braconidae, Euphorinae), a sort of tiny wasp that is part of one of the most species-rich families.
The important news is that this insect was observed in one of our most important organic vineyards on the estate of Poggio al Casone, where for many years - together with dr. Andrea Lucchi and dr. Augusto Loni, entomologists at the University of Pisa - we are conducting an experimental research in order to understand the effectiveness of anti-moth by mating disruption and the influence of this on biodiversity.
“We were very impressed by this discovery - explains Piergiorgio Castellani - which helps us to better understand the importance of biodiversity in our ecosystem and confirms the validity of our efforts to provide a scientific basis for the development of techniques for organic cultivation of the vineyard. As a company, for years, we are working for sustainable agriculture in a sustainable environment and the relationship with the University goes in that direction. Finding out that where we live with our families there is a world almost invisible but so complex and important for our existence on this planet, makes us all more aware and more responsible and helps us to vigorously pursue a concept of quality of our wines wider and more complete.”

Materia Prima - ceppaiano.com

Why a site for Materia Prima is named ceppaiano.com? If you were to explain why... The problem, at the conceptual level, can be overcome. The theorem is simple. Given that Ceppaiano is the physical and metaphysical area elected to receive Materia Prima in its ideas and in its forms, so the web area where it lives is ceppaiano.com. And that is also its address. The estate is a perfect setting, surrounded by nature, where time seems to pass more slowly. Perfect for reflection, mystical. Inspiration.
