Liguria

LiguriaConsidered the Italian Riviera, Liguria is a beautiful yet Siena Imports Cinque Terredifficult region for winemaking. The steep, terraced cliffs that hang over the coastal Cinque Terre area have captured the hearts of tourists and Italians alike. It would seem that very little agriculture, let alone viticulture, would be suited for this area, but in fact more than 100 grape varietals are produced here. This is the land of Vermentino, a varietal that thrives on salty air and poor soil, found here in abundance. Other native white varietals include Bosco and Albarola; native reds include Pigato, Rosses, Sangiovese, Ciliegolo, and Ormeasco (Dolcetto). Nothing beats the pleasure of accompanying a plate of fritto misto (mixed fried seafood) with a glass of white Cinque Terre wine on a hot summer day.

Siena Imports

Over the centuries man has changed the hostile nature of these places: the terraces and dry walls have become part of the landscape. The “Cooperativa Agricoltura” has 300 farmer members, working as a community for the upkeep of this landscape and the appreciation of the most famous fruit of this land: the Cinque Terre wine.

The considerable investments that Cooperativa Agricoltura has, for many years, undertaken in the most advanced oenological technologies have allowed the natural characteristics of the environment and grapes to stand out in the production of a wine of extraordinary quality. In the premises in Groppo di Riomaggiore, built in 1982 using the same materials as those used for terracing the vineyards, the Cooperativa Agricoltura Cellar in Cinque Terre is the only important production company in the area that ensures a high level of investment in the most modern wine-making technologies.

This has a single, constant purpose: to obtain, from the limited production of this vineyard, every last drop of taste and atmosphere found in Cinque Terre.
