Continue the journey to the discovery of eChiantishop companies, today we are in Mercatale Val di Pesa, a small village in the Chianti hills, with Niccolò Martelli, the owner of the Perseto Terre farm.
Between innovation and tradition which of two words would you use to define your own farm?
Of course both of them, Terre Perseto was founded by my grandfather and since the beginning has been characterized as a fully owned family company to which are added innovation and new technologies. In 2009, we renovated the premises of the winery and we equipped ourselves with the latest equipment. These two elements, innovation and tradition, feature in welcoming guests, a familiar welcome for a dynamic experience with the direct sale of wine and tastings we propose.
What are the strengths that set you apart from the companies in this area?
Certainly the familiar look of the company and the availability we give our guests, we live in company so we are always there. In addition to this we distinguish our products, like the rose wine, fresh and fruity, which we produce with white wine-making, with a completely modernized label in 2010.
How are your Metello, Verziere and Albόre wines born? What inspired you in the choice of names?
The Metello is a red IGT wine, produced for the first time in 2015 and is named after my grandfather Metello, founder of the company, to whom I wanted to dedicate this wine. The Verziere is a fresh and fruity rosé wine, Verziere means precisely “garden, with fruit trees”, this name refers to the name of Terre Perseto derived from the peach orchard. Albόre is a Chianti Classico DOCG and was the first wine produced by the company, the name refers to the very beginning of this new adventure.
Can you advise us the perfect pairings for these wines?
The perfect combinations are of course Tuscan dishes, red meats and pasta with sauces at will. The rosé wine is the perfect protagonist for a drink or dinner based on fish, the Chianti Classico, however, is an elegant wine that goes very well with white meats.
