Other Things to Note
Moving from the valley to the hills we notice the characteristic elements of this territory: vineyards and olive groves that produce wine and oil of excellent quality.
The cultivation of the wine on the gentle slopes of the suggestive hills dates back to far-off times.
Wines grow vigorous in rows from the slopes of Parish Saint Stephen to Lucca, from Saint Gennaro to Montecarlo, on the hills of Porcari and Altopascio. This is the DOC area of the hills of Lucca and Montecarlo: the grounds are formed by the debris of the Appennino and are rich in clay and silica mixed with gravels from the Apuane Alps, thus being perfect for growing vines and for the production of wines of high quality. The temperate climate, the exposure to the sun and the presence of summits that shelter the vineyards against the northern cold contribute to the development of a strong production characterized by a high level of sugars and richness of flavours.
In the territory of Capannori, the best production of wine is in the fractions of Matraia, Valgiano, Segromigno in Monte, Gragnano, Tofori, San Gennaro and Petrognano.
COLLINE LUCCHESI DOC: these are wines produce in the territory of Lucca, Capannori and Porcari. The area is that of Pieve Santo Stefano, Cappella, the high area of Moriano and, over the Serchio river, the areas of San Pancrazio, Matraia, Valgiano, Segromigno in Monte, Gragnano, Tofori, San Gennaro and the hills of Porcari. The grape varieties traditionally are: Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo and Merlot for the red variety; Trebbiano Toscano, Graco, Grechetto, Vermentino Bianco, Malvasia del Chianti, Chardonnay and Sauvignon for the white one.
MONTECARLO DOC: these are wines produce in the territory of Montecarlo and in the municipality of Altopascio and Porcari. Montecarlo, dominating with its medieval castle and almost entirely preserved fortified walls, has many vineyards and olive groves on its hills. The view from there is wonderful: the hills of Lucca toward north, the plain and the hill of Valdinievole toward east and the plain of Lucca toward south-west. The grapes varietis are: Trebbiano Toscano, Semillon, white and grey Pinot, Vermentino, Sauvignon and Rousanno for the white variety; Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Colorino, black Malvasia and Syrah for the red one.
Sipping a good glass of wine is possible in the villas or the farms of the territory of Capannori where, though respecting tradition, advanced technologies are widely adopted.
There are old and modern cellars worth to be visited. This is an experience that can be lived privately or directly or in groups enjoying the tasting of wine and oil in the most important olive groves and cellars of the territory.
