A connected place to listen to and cherish
Twenty-five years of passion
Respect for the territory, tradition and grape variety: these are the cornerstones on which La Lastra is established. From the love for Tuscany and its wines this small winery was born in 1995, founded by a group of friends with the common passion of good wine. Their intent was to start a production based on the quality that the excellence of the land of Siena could offer them. Tradition was their first point, starting to vinify two of the most characteristic vines of Tuscany: Vernaccia di San Gimignano and Sangiovese.
To create a wine that represents the territory in which it is born, you need to know how to listen to it, understand its organoleptic characteristics, from the aromatic to the gustatory profile, study its behavior in various harvests, analyze the soil from which it comes and watch it age. It is necessary to be able to combine the main grapes with other supporting varieties, improving the qualities of the main vine without ever overpowering it. It is necessary to treat it delicately, choose the right ways and times to refine it, evaluate whether to enrich it or leave it fresh and young, always without undermining its authenticity. This is the only way to obtain a wine in which the aromas of a place, its sun, its terroir, its history and millenary traditions can be found.
Last but not least is respect for the consumer: wine is a pleasure, not a need, which is why those who drink a glass of our wine must be able to appreciate the sensations they experience with every sip and once finished feel like they want more.
