WHO WE ARE
The roots of Carlo Parenti’s vineyards lie in the hectic life of piazza Affari in Milan. A master’s degree in winery management with Professor Attilio Scienza opened the door to his life by rediscovering the family bond with the land: “My father had a farm in Lodi, and I have always carried the scent and essence of the countryside with me. “. After an internship, work experience in a company and a sommelier course, he said goodbye to the bank! Instinct, a dream, and a pinch of madness lead me to Suvereto. Carlo’s true passion is the vineyard: “Maybe I’m more passionate about the land than about wine and when it comes to wine, I like what fully expresses the variety of a terroir. The cellar is a moment of production which, however, experiences the most important process in the vineyard in contact with the elements of Mother Nature. My wine wants to tell this terroir, not to meet the tastes of the market and sustainability is the condition for expressing the territory “. Carlo is a curious person, thirsty for knowledge, sensitive and aware that in a path of growth, mistakes are the building blocks on which certainties are built. When he sits on the ground leaning on the vines, as he does on a sofa: it is his comfort zone. Biodynamic means relating in a healthy, respectful, and sustainable way to the elements of the earth. “The gravitational winemaking system is important here. The heat causes a rapid maturation of the sugars and this system also helps to manage early harvests, with the processing of grapes not yet ripe, allowing us to obtain leaner and more fragrant wines. The initial project was focused on red wines, but today I am the only producer in Suvereto that sees the centrality of production in white wines as an element that characterizes the company and the territory. In fact, they call me the “bianchista”. Initially the amber Ansonica did not align with the standards of approval (including visual) and was roughly confused with “marsala” wine; but today it is one of the most popular wines.
TIPS FROM THE PRODUCER
In Belvedere: dining in the “dirt road” heart of the village is the real Tuscany.
