Giacomelli Winery is cradled between the Apuan Alps and the Tyrrhenian Sea, benefiting from a unique microclimate where cool mountain winds meet the salty sea breeze. This creates a mineral-rich soil composition, with varying types such as sandstone, clay, and iron-rich red soils. The result is a wine with unparalleled depth and character.

From a typical Ligurian farm producing wine, olive oil, and vegetables in 1915, to a focused viticulture haven, Roberto Petacchi has meticulously curated 8 hectares of vineyards. His dedication to organic farming and respect for the environment shines through in every bottle, ensuring that each sip of Giacomelli wine is a celebration of the land and its heritage.
