Marco Turco, Lucifer
Smoky and savoury, with scents of dark cherry, pomegranate, and earth. A wine with depth and structure, to share with good friends on an afternoon barbecue.
Grapes: Pinot Nero, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
Place: Veneto, Italy
A great friend and true Vignaiolo, Marco grew up surrounded by a vines garden in his parents house. From there, a few seasons of practice with local producers followed, spiced with a couple of years behind the counter of a natural vineria, Marco’s last stop, before starting his own wine in 2018.
The Cantina is located in Bressanvido, a sleepy village known for the Transumanza (seasonal migration of flocks, herds and shepherds), north to Vicenza in Veneto. Marco tend his vines on the gentle hills of Breganze, between the Brenta river, the Monti Lessini Natural Park and the Asiago plateau. The soils here are of volcanic origin; basalts, tuffs and a high content in limestone.
No use of chemical agents in the vineyard and only strictly necessary interventions in the cellar, Marco's wines are full of energy and closely linked to the land from which they come.
