TENUTA LA MACCHIA has born from the entrepreneurial idea of three young winemaker from Tuscany. Linked by a common love for our land and the desire to make concrete a dream pursued for long time. We decided to put our knowledge into a project full of ambition. After a common study, and gained experience in wine-growing and wine-making in different areas of Italy and not only, we acquired the estate, immediately believing in it after having ascertained the great wine-growing, climatic and enological potential. We are placed in Tuscany, Montescudaio (Pisa), in a farm enclosed between the hinterland and the see coast. The Estate is composed of about 2.2 hectare of screw and wants to distinguish itself in the Italian wine scene with niche products, which are identified in the exclusivity. We produce following the canons of organic farming in respect of the environment and the consumer. We are making a continuous and methodical work to eliminate the chemical synthesis, improving the structural characteristics of the soil and its life forms. We try to limit the use of additives and processing aids in our products making them as natural as possible. Four are our label: SCUTUM: IGT red wine, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot e Petit Verdot, aged in wood. ARYAH: IGT white wine, Sauvignon Blanc 100%. MATERIA:IGT rosè wine, Merlot e Petit Verdot. CONTINUO: sparkling brut rosé from grapes Merlot e Petit Verdot obtained with Charmat method. "Staining a wine" means to give a precise and unique personality.
The company name comes from the fact that the estate is surrounded by a dense Mediterranean vegetation that is part of the "GARDEN - Scornabecchi", an agricultural heritage regional forest: a small natural oasis that is developed in the town of Montescudaio and Riparbella, in the province of Pisa, with paths for walking and cycling enthusiasts. Hence also the history of the labels. We wanted to give it an identity and to ensure that, at first glance, our products bring to the company immediately. It all stems from a dinner with friends, the base of a glass of wine and a tablecloth. Thus it was born the logo of the estate reported on the computer and refined through specific programs. All homemade because, as with everything, our philosophy is to give a personal identity. The logo has been reported on all labels enhancing and distinguishing each wine thanks to the different colors to the drops. We used the red drops for Scutum, gray for Aryah, black for Materia and gold for Continuo.
