“Ottantuno is one of the two CRUs in the Luiano property representing the top of the quality Pyramid within the Chianti Classico Range of wines. It is that special bottle that you need in that day to give prestige to that moment…. The grapes for this wines are obtained by two selected adjacent vineyards that extend their-selves on a stony slope giving this wine the gift of a one of a kind bouquet of spices, minerals and scents of the nature. This wine is most of all unique in style and very limited in the number of bottles made. It is the jewell of the Crown within the range of our wines”.
About the brand
In 1959 Alberto Palombo, textile merchant from Naples, became the owner of Luiano. Alberto and his wife, Licia were so enchanted by Luiano and its history that they decided to buy the property to carry on its long lasting tradition of vine growing and wine making. Alberto’s first steps as a vintner and a wine maker were very innovative. He immediately abandoned the mixed agricultural system that used to characterize all the farms in that period of time and focused on cultivating vines only. Alberto’s goal was to produce and distribute bottled wine of the highest quality.
He made it and today his son Antonio and his grandchildren carry on the project adding even more enthusiasm and some innovation. Today Luiano is a dynamic family owned winery, which aims to produce fun and enjoyable wines. Both Alessandro and Felicia, Antonio’s son and daughter share their father’s passion for Luiano.
Luianos production is entirely focused on excellence by combining techniques of innovation and tradition. Making wine at Luiano means making wine lovers drink with pleasure thanks to pleasant and enjoyable wines with a clean and clear taste. The aim is to offer in a bottle of wine the aroma and the flavour of perfectly ripened juicy fruit, a loyal representation of the hard work done in both vineyard cultivation and wine processing.
