This is Tuscany’s northernmost D.O.C. appellation, and the southernmost in Liguria. Colli di Luni D.O.C. in fact covers an area that is equally divided between the two adjacent regions and includes the Tuscan municipalities of Fosdinovo, Aulla and Podenzana and fourteen municipalities in Liguria. Vermentino is the name of one of the local grape varieties grown in this hilly area near the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The current Colli di Luni D.O.C. appellation is a token of recognition of the old winemaking traditions of this land, as well as of the efforts of its winegrowers in recent years. The appellation includes two whites, one of which made exclusively with Vermentino grapes, and a red.
