Le Miccine is a family owned winery & vineyard that is lead by a dynamic & young team. Winemaker Paula Cook was born in Quebec, Canada, but moved to her grandparent's ancestral home of Tuscany in 2008, buying an estate that had been abandoned during the global financial crisis. She learnt Italian while she revived this vineyard, using only ancient traditional methods to breathe life back into the soil & the vines. Le Miccine has seven hectares of vineyards that surround the property. Le Miccine follows organic viticultural practices (Certified Organic in 2016), which increase biodiversity & allow the vines to increase their natural defenses against pathogens. The objective is to attain a balance that gives optimum grape quality. Gran Selezione is a very new quality designation, established in 2014, & this wine is Paula's very first release of this wine.
