About Us

Through our wine, we would like to tell the history of a territory, of vineyards, wines and people that work every day with love to offer an authentic experience. We believe in the strong link with the territory and with the environment we live in: in everything we do, we focus on the respect of such a heritage and the continuous search for quality.
Sincere and fine, Lunadoro wines are the natural expression of this philosophy.

The Territory and The Vine

The Montepulciano territory was formed in different geologic eras and has an exceptional variety: the soil is light in the lower areas and rugged in the higher ones, with a thin active layer which enhances the grapes. The typical Mediterranean climate, with some continental features, sets the perfect conditions for the growth of the vines. Especially the area around Valiano, where the vineyards of Lunadoro are located, is characterized by moderate altitudes (332 meters a.s.l.). The soils are clay and the climate is influenced both from Val di Chiana and the Trasimeno Lake. This area benefits from a favuorable wind exposure, which assures the gradual and complete ripening of the grapes.

The company has 12 hectares of vineyards, 10 of Sangiovese and 2 of Merlot and Petit Verdot. The vineyard has the spur-trained system, obtained by the short pruning (2 buds) of a variable number of renewal spurs (about 4-5 spurs).
Each hectare has 5.000 plants and a yield of 7,5 tons of grapes.

All the steps of the selection and production are carried out manually, in perfect harmony with the environment: from pruning to the choice of the best bud, from the control of the vegetation to the thinning out of the bunches. The harvest is carried out only manually and during the destemming, the grapes are selected to use only the best quality.

Montepulciano

Montepulciano is the biggest municipality of the Val di Chiana, whose landscape is a beautiful sequence of hills, where the nature and the human work have sketched one of the most suggestive sceneries of our country.

Who really wants to explore Montepulciano needs to lose himself in its flavours and culture, to discover the Vino Nobile and its producers. Through the streets of Vino Nobile, it is possible to reach Valiano, where Lunadoro is located, an area of vineyards, olive trees and woods, where the ancient Castle is the best representation of the medieval architecture, with its walls, towers and narrow streets, here usually called “rughe” (wrinkles): they are the evidences of an ancient history, that everybody can breathe and experience with every sense.

The lack of water during the summer has caused a natural decrease in the weight of the bunches, with a decrease of the quantities of about 20% compared to last year. However, the maturation of the grapes has proceeded very well and the harvest, that will end at the end of September, is of high quality.
