(RAMPAGNANO – FERMO) Lumavite, led by Giancarlo Testa, produces excellent red and white wines in Rapagnano, in the Marche region, with the desire to respect the vineyards and the environment. The Tusiano red wine, a Montepulciano stands out.
Lumavite’s History and Philosophy
Italy has two coasts, one west to Spain and the other east to Greece and the various countries that emerged from the dissolution of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. Of the two, the former is unquestionably better known, as it includes the nation’s commercial and industrial capitals in its territory. This division also exists in the viticulture sector, well-made wines are undoubtedly produced throughout Italy, but in modern times the best known and most prestigious denominations are found mainly on the western or Tyrrhenian side of the peninsula: Barolo and Barbaresco, Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Taurasi.
This may suggest a disadvantage for the many houses that work along the Adriatic coast, but this is not the case. Focusing on the Marche, for example, there are the highest quality grapes such as Montepulciano, Sangiovese and Verdicchio, appreciated in Italy and worldwide. The Azienda Agricola Lumavite , in Rapagnano , is renowned for its red wines with its own base of Montepulciano and Sangiovese . Born in 2002, the house immediately committed itself to creating a production of quality wines, firmly believing in the hard work that starts from the fields and reaches the cellar.
Giancarlo Testa , the owner, aware of the winemaking tradition and the enormous potential offered by this land, together with the help of his trusted winemaker Giovanni Basso , continue to make wines that are noble expressions of their territory. The refusal of pesticides and organic fertilization are just two examples of the road they have decided to take to raise the standards and at the same time respect the vineyards and the environment.
The wines of Lumavite
The hectares of vines are not many, about 5, but each grape planted seems to give exceptional results, as demonstrated by the two precious offerings of Sangiovese , Frasseto and SessantadiTino , the high level and the original blend of Sangiovese , Montepulciano and Syrah called Vidacilius , and the superb Montepulciano , Tusiano , which competes with the best of the Marche, Abruzzo and Umbria regions .
