Giacomelli

From dust to sky in the beautiful
region of Liguria.

Created in 1993 from family vineyards of 1913, Roberto Petacchi carries forward his grandfather’s passion through Giacomelli. 

Roberto is influenced by the souls of the territory, bringing pleasant and immediate wines from the plains of IGT "Riviera di Levante” and more complex and structured wines from the hills of Colli di Luni. He has also enhanced the agricultural heritage of the land,  recovering the "Boboli" vineyard, one of the historic cru's of Castelnuovo Magra, located just a few steps below the medieval castle giving the town its name. 

 

Roberto believes that the vineyard is the basis of everything  connecting him to the land. His techniques respect the environment,  using minimal intervention and encouraging Nature to offer all she can.

 

Whether Paduletti, Pianacce or Boboli, these natural, elegant wines represent the balance of man and Mother Nature, keeping Giacomelli connected to the earth while providing happiness in a glass.

Meyer lemon, honeydew, pear nectar, all fresh and ripe with notes of key lime pie, billy bee honey and honey suckle. Palate mirrors the nose but the fruit becomes more tart with stoney minerality. Finishes fresh and silky.
