Tenuta Santa Lucia
The vineyard of Santa Lucia Estate sits 100 meters above sea level on the rolling hills at the intersection of the Arno and Era valleys. With the radiant Tuscan sun overhead and fossil-rich soil below, the valley’s Ciliegiolo grapes produce structured wines that soften and burst with intense flavor.
Organically farmed and hand-harvested from low-yielding vines, the Tenuta Santa Lucia offers incredible versatility. Its drinkability makes this twist on a Tuscan classic the perfect companion for a long lunch with friends or a romantic dinner tra amanti. Pair with fresh tomato pasta, or enjoy the wine’s fruit-forward bouquet as a pre-meal apéritif.
The History of Tenuta Santa Lucia
The Castellani Family acquired Santa Lucia Estate in 2013 with the intention of experimenting with the Ciliegiolo grape variety. Taking its name from the Italian for “cherry,” the popularity of the Ciliegiolo has only risen since the turn of the century. These grapes are an original contribution to the Tuscan tradition, and producers like the Castellani Family are true innovators in the production of red wines.
Tenuta Santa Lucia Company Mission
For five generations, the Castellani Family has cultivated the rich Tuscan soil, producing elegant wines enjoyed by connoisseurs around the globe. Dedicated to crafting beautiful blends of Ciliegiolo and Sangiovese grapes, Tenuta Santa Lucia takes a sustainable approach to its cultivation, harvesting, casking, and bottling practices.
Benefits of Tenuta Santa Lucia
