In this area between the Apennines and the Apuan Alps, each wine is an expression of the area and the forest that surrounds the vineyard. The choice of vines was not easy but in this case the territory, microclimate and southern exposure led me to prefer wines of extreme finesse.
Podere Còncori was born from the ambition of my father Luigi Da Prato who in the 1950s began a journey or rather an adventure: producing wine. The origins of my family span generations from carpenters to painters to innkeepers, cooks...wine has always been part of this world. Wine was produced for snacks and Luigi kept it in demijohns.
The name Melograno was born years ago from a walk through the vineyards with a great friend and profound admirer Gino… Veronelli.
The ruby red color is bright with light, the aromatic profile is direct, intriguing, lively and expressive: red berries, black cherry, pepper and aromatic herbs, the same ones found in the vineyards. Rhythm, freshness and instinctive drinkability, like a beautiful song that you listen to over and over again without ever getting tired, so you finish the bottle in a few minutes.
Giovanni Pascoli came with his buggy to the family tavern, he ate the trout while sipping the wine from the Fiattone hills, this wine is dedicated to the history of my family, to culture and conviviality…
Since I have a past as an innkeeper, I produce my wines always thinking about pairings with food and this wine represents the idea well, juicy and elegant with a great drinkability.
One of the best interpretations of Syrah in Italy.
Born in the historic vineyard that belonged to the great-grandparents. Its extreme slope of the 70% on the Serchio river provides ventilation and temperature range favoring a perfect ripening of the grapes which acquire a beautiful complexity. The lands facing south are rich in silica, sandstone and pebbly stone.
… This is not a good wine, it is a great Syrah Quote “From cesare al Casaletto” Mr. Alessandro)
