Harmony with the land is the most precious good

“Harmony with the land is the most precious good”: an affirmation that we feel we are implementing with increasing awareness on our journey at La Maliosa. 2018 was the year for disseminating the values we believe in, through the story of our journey, in our experiences in the field and now with ten-years of data at our disposal.

Our first ten years

“It’s 2018,” I told myself. “And we are already in May, certainly the New Year has been and gone”, but it’s by looking at the awards and guide mentions received for the work and products of 2016-2017 that I realize Fattoria La Maliosa has arrived at its 10th year of production.

Raised in a family of entrepreneurs, I learned that certain steps must be analysed to understand if a goal has been achieved. Ten years ago, my ideals and my values were clear, built through the many experiences abroad, but upon returning to Italy, I realised that I was not aligned with the national “sentiment” on environmental issues and sustainability.

Fattoria La Maliosa was not a dream, but the need to express these values and make them concrete and tangible with a unique partner: the soil, which, in its own way, has always spoken to me and shown the way, but also imposed times and adequate corrections throughout the years.

2017 at La Maliosa

The Land
In 2017, Fattoria La Maliosa grew. One and a half hectares of vineyards have been planted in the Monte Cavallo area, which we have renamed “Vigna Corino al Monte Cavallo”. The “Vigna Anfiteatro” was also created from scratch.
Restructuring of the Vigna Madre has continued with new grafts of buds from the farm’s vineyards.
We also started a re-grafting program in the olive groves, by changing the variety on a hundred young olive trees  with the Leccio del Corno cultivar.
The climatic trend of 2017 will surely be remembered as the driest and warmest ever felt in Maremma Tuscany.
Starting this year, we also have inherited the management of just over one hectare of an approximately 40-year-old vineyard in Valtellina (Lombardy), planted with the Chiavennasca variety. A rare example of heroic terracing in an environment rich in wine culture and history, as well as mountain produce.

12 months on the farm

Keeping with our annual tradition, I’d like to revisit with you who support us through reading, sharing and caring about our work, the most important moments of 2014.
It has been a year of great effort and growth, and just like a small tree, the time has come to face the first storm.
We experienced mixed emotions; excitement, responsibility and self-consciousness towards our identity. Yes, we felt a bit like a teenager who arrives at their destination on their first solo trip.
So here is the story of our journey through 2014:

In February, we had our first Caves de Pyrenes tasting in Reggio Emilia with friend Niccolò Desenzani, who presented the Maliosa Bianco 2013.

In March, Edda, La Maliosa’s horse, gave birth to a beautiful Italian Heavy Draft filly, who we named Italia. Unfortunately, only three weeks later, our joy was mixed with tears as Eddy died from complications after birthing.

How Lorenzo Corino and Antonella Manuli met in Maremma

I really enjoy observing Antonella and Lorenzo, they scrutinize me trying to figure out if I can be a good custodian of their vision.
I ask Lorenzo, who until December was the Research Manager at the Asti Research Center for Oenology, if he knew the Maremma and Saturnia before this trip.
“I knew about Saturnia, but I did not know about the Spa. Only recently a colleague had mentioned it to me. Before the summer I left for Rome with my Moto Guzzi California 2, stopping in Maremma. Very tired, I’ve slept in Albinia. Then I’ve reached the National Headquarters of Research for Agriculture in Rome and after lunch I started again.

Fattoria La Maliosa

I’ve always craved the contact with the earth. I ferociously love the smell of grass. Not its fragrance, its smell: the smell of wet soil, of soil burned by the sun and the silent impact natural elements produce when clashing.

Does each farm offer organic products?

The presence of a beautiful farmhouse surrounded by cultivated fields leads us to believe that the products being used or sold there are all from that farm or from that territory.
