The La Cura wine estate, owned by Enrico Corsi, is a young and dynamic producing institution composed by 15 hectares of vineyards in the heart of the Maremma Toscana DOC and Monteregio di Massa Marittima, located in the Alta Maremma on the Mediterranean coast. The main varieties grown are the Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Ansonica, Vermentino, Malvasia, Trebbiano and Chardonnay, with a yearly total production of 30,000 bottles. The agricultural business favors an ecological approach to the working of the soil and of the vineyards, coordinated by the University of Pisa, which is also its main technical partner.
Aged in one year barriques, it is one of the Merlots with the most character of the area. It combines an intense and sunny aromatic profile with a wide and juicy flavor progression. This Merlot has also been named as best Italian Merlot in 2010 in the most important Italian contest dedicated to this specific type of wine that is held in Aldeno (province of Trento) each year.
Among the labels recently produced we must point out the “Vendetta” (lit. vengeance) that made its debut at the last edition of Vinitaly. It is a special selection of cabernet sauvignon produced only during the best vintages; a wine conceived also for the visually impaired. The heaviness of its bottle has been designed to facilitate its handling, protecting it from impacts, from temperature changes and from the contact with ultraviolet rays. The labels is written also in Braille’s characters with a QR code that gives audio information on the features of the wine and on the winery.
The project for the visually impaired has been broadened to include the entire range of the wines of the La Cura winery. La Cura is not only wine: the estate, in fact, that was historically devoted to horticulture, from fruits to grains, still keeps these productions alive. The more than 10 hectares produce fresh fruit to make preserves and jams, while on the other 120 hectares there is a production of cereals. In addition, La Cura produces clean energy that uses for its activities, through a 1 MW photovoltaic plant, located near the buildings of the farm.
