Description

Back in 1897 Domenico Triacca acquired 2.000 square metres of vineyards in Valgella, one of the best areas of Valtellina. He built himself a small cella where he could turn his own grapes into wine and allow them to mature, thereby establishing the "philosophy" behind Triacca of making wine exclusively from its own grapes - the essence of "Dalla mia vigna" logo, which means "from my vine". Triacca's once modest holding has since gradually expanded to cover 40 hectares. Triacca family later decided to grow wines in Tuscany and in 1969 they acquired the Tuscan estate "La Madonnina", in the heart of the Chianti Classico region. Today they have specialised vines covering some 100 hectares. In 1990 the family went on acquire the "Santavenere" estate with 36 hectares of vineyards in the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano area.The new wine cellar with its striking architecture to fit the landscape has 4.000 hectolitres of wine storage capacity. It is composed of an upper level where there are the stainless vats for the vinification and a lower level with barriques, tonneaux and big barrels of wood for the ageing process that lasts at least 18 months. According to the family tradition the Tuscan estates are managed by a member of the family, Luca Triacca.
