The wines of the “Colline Lucchesi” boast of an important tradition, which dates back to Roman times and the Middle Ages. In particular, the red is the heir today of what was once the wine produced on the hills surrounding the cities, and in the towns of Lucca and Capannori, namely in the area where there were the most prestigious properties, the patricians of the Republic of Lucca.
The exceptional weather of the area is a guarantee of the production of wine, which typically has a ruby ??red colour, a fruity aroma and a dry flavor, appreciated by the most discerning of palates. The minimum alcohol content is around 11 percent, depending on the type of wine. Worth a mention is also the white wine, with its pale yellow or straw colour, its delicate scent and an alcohol content that varies between 10.5 and 11 percent.
Everyone should taste Trebbiano Toscano, Grechetto, the Greek, the white Vermentino, Malvasia del Chianti, Chardonnay and Sauvignon. Unlike the Red wine, which became DOC in 1968, White wine was recognized in 1985, to confirm, officially, the supreme quality appreciated worldwide.
