“Valiano is my family’s home, our legacy and my dream. Valiano is a dream I pursue since I was young. Well, young enough to drink at our family dinners. One time, my father passed me a glass of wine and asked me what I think. I remember with such clarity the surprise of realizing that I tasted everything at the same time: bitter and sweet, savor and acidic, all so perfectly mingled that I tasted nothing, but my palate asked “is there more?”

“That feeling I carry with me since then and I am always looking to relive that strong and profound emotion of my first realization that wine is a living thing.
I guess all that I do is guided by this irrational desire to share the joy of tasting a glass of wine.”

Mario Piccini
