Caccia al Piano 1868
It was the end of the nineties when the famous Franciacorta company "Guido Berlucchi" identified, not far from Bolgheri, the ideal place to give life to a new production reality, that is to say a winery capable of giving birth to great red wines of international caliber. Caccia al Piano was born in this way, an estate of 20 hectares in the heart of the town of Castagneto Carducci, one of the most prestigious places in Tuscany wine. It is a strip of land where the climate is ideal for the cultivation of vines: on the one hand the continuous sea breezes from the Tyrrhenian coast, while on the other the nearby mountains that shelter the hills themselves from the coldest winds, leading to relaxed and elegant wines, respectively based on Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. They are called "Ruit Hora" and "Levia Gravia": a direct tribute to that Giosuè Carducci (they are the title of a poem and a collection of poems written by the poet himself) who just in Castagneto Carducci spent part of his life.
