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.
What to expect
‘Paduletti’, Liguria di Levante IGT, 2021
60% Vermentino/30% Trebbiano/10% Malvasia
Prickly pear, lemon, fresh fig, and a faint hint of sea air. A pleasant roundness on the palate with notes of green apple, grapefruit, white flowers and ocean spray.
‘Pianacce’, Colli di Luni DOC, 2021
Medium bodied with pleasant notes of citrus, pineapple, thyme, white pepper, mint and honey. Exposure to the salty air means that the salt is deposited on every grape and can therefore be detected in every sip.
‘Boboli’, Colli di Luni DOC, 2018
95% Vermentino,/5% Malvasia di Candia
Amazingly floral, overflowing with orange blossom and gardenia. Finely textured, with lush stone fruit and great concentration.
'Giardino dei Vescovi'
'Giardino dei Vescovi', Colli di Luni DOC, 2019
Citrus and tropical bouquet, with intense notes of tangerine, honey, chamomile flowers, sage and rosemary. On the palate it is fresh and mineral, with a good sapid persistence. Complex and layered - a very fun wine.
'Gorgonia', Liguria di Levante IGT, 2019
Coral pink, delicate and transparent. A gentle aroma of wild strawberry and pomegranate. Palate predominantly oriented on flavour and freshness.
