Santa Giustina is located in the heart of the Colli Piacentini, in the most northwestern corner of Emilia Romagna. Picturesque hardly describes the perfect backdrop to what the estate calls their ‘village’ (a few 1000 year old buildings, a church, and their wine-making facilities), sitting at 300 meters above sea level with the famous Po Valley and Alps in the distance over perfect undulating hills. The most natural of surroundings make up the 100 hectare property, comprised of many different crops, forests, vineyards, and a private game reserve. 30 hectares of organically farmed vineyards produce just over 70,000 bottles a year to create a wide range of wine from the local varietals. Viticultural and vinicultural practices are extremely natural in principal, finding it completely unnecessary to intervene with the natural magic of the grapes they farm. In addition to their clean and pure winemaking philosophy, and due to the entire family’s allergies to sulfur, they choose to use no SO2 whatsoever in the winery. Vines are harvested by hand and brought immediately into the cellar for a gentle pressing. About a 20-day fermentation and maceration on the skins takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel, before a couple months rest prior to bottling. And the result is intense and elegant all at the same time. A nose of pretty aromas of violets, red cherries, and fresh blueberries is followed by a balanced and full-bodied mouth feel.
