Marta Valpiani 2016 'Crete Azzurre' Sangiovese, Emilia-Romagna, Italy

In 1998, Elisa Mazzavillani and her mother, Marta Valpiani took over 12 HA of vineyards in Romagna, overhauling the land by hand to restore it to a more natural state of agriculture. Although they are not certified, Elisa focuses on sustainable practices in the winery (lower water and electricity usage; lighter glass bottles for a lower carbon footprint), and is integrating more biodynamic approaches into the vineyards with each vintage. An accomplished artist, Elisa creates the  labels herself, meant to reflect the beautiful flora and fauna found in their vineyards.
