The Caccia al Piano tenuta, or wine estate, is set into the enchanting winegrowing environment of Bolgheri, where the perfect combination of Mediterranean climate and limestone-clay soils has created a terroir ideal for yielding world-class wines. The romantic Via Bolgherese, whose acclaimed cypresses border a wealth of vineyards and olive groves, frames winemaker Franco Ziliani’s new adventure in creating wines that always leave their mark.
The history of Caccia al Piano is intimately bound up with that of the Bolgheri area, whose far-sighted winemakers, beginning in the 1970s, have made this Italian winegrowing zone celebrated for its history-making wines.
The estate comprises about 30 hectares overall, of which 23 are planted to vineyard. Averaging between 13 to 23 years old, they are divided into four crus: San Biagio, Grottine, Cantina, and Le Bozze.
Caccia Al Piano’s winecellar, completed in 2014, exhibits the perfect marriage of aesthetic integration into its surroundings, functional modernism, and painstaking attention to detail.
The estate’s production is currently in the range of 140,000 bottles per year. The red wines are produced from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc, while the whites rely on Vermentino and Sauvignon Blanc.
Caccia Al Piano’s new logo is inspired by statues and paintings that represent Diana, goddess of the hunt, a visual theme effectively linked with the history of the estate.
