The Fattoria di Fubbiano stretches across 45 hectares along the Lucca hills, between the villages of Tofori and San Gennaro, an area where wine has been produced since the 14th century. 20 hectares are used for wine production with an average annual yield of around 100.000 bottles.
The Fattoria di Fubbiano produces four red wines which belong to the D.O.C. (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) «Colline Lucchesi Rosso»; three white wines which belong to the D.O.C. «Colline Lucchesi Bianco»; a Supertuscan Red I.G.T. (Indicazione Geografica Tipica), and also «Aqua Vitae» Grappa and “Aceto di Vino” wine vinegar.
Viticulture is performed following the traditional methods (guyot and spurred cordon), with an extremely low number of buds and a planting density of approximately 5000 vines per hectare, in order to obtain and enhance quality rather than quantity. Although the vineyards may suffer of a light drought in the summer, no extra watering is supplied, and the particular care which is dedicated to every single aspect of winegrowing, is also finalized to improve the quality, from the viticulture techniques to the methods of production, or to the manuring systems and the treatments against parasites. For the white wines a pneumatic press, which allows a soft pressing of the grapes, without affecting the woody stalks, is used and the fermentation process is carried out at a controlled temperature, which gives a more elegant and fragant wine as a result. The red wines are made using traditional techniques of vinification, (such as punching of the cap, repassing, délestage, oak barrels or barriques passages) which may vary according to the typologies of the wine involved, as the final results may lead to significantly different wines. The oenological choices of the winery have always privileged a strong respect of the local tradition and the production of typical wines with a well-defined personality, always aiming towards a constantly improving quality, in order to provide the consumer with a more interesting wine-tasting and to enhance the eno-gastronomic pleasures. Come to visit us in Lucca, Tuscany!

The Festa del Centro Storico is many things, mostly but not exclusively musical, wrapped up into a 10-day package that can alternately dazzle and exhaust performers and audiences alike. It’s provocative a lot of the time and (alas) too enamored of high-decibel volume much of the time. But it is very seldom, if ever, boring.
Monday night’s installment was a stunning example, brought to us by a foursome of contemporary musicians and visual artists in the Piazza Angelio and a dynamic open-air nightclub combo in Piazza Annunziata. In the peripatetic tradition of what used to be called the Festa delle Piazzette – am I alone in preferring the old name? – the summer evening crowds wandered back and forth between these two acts: art as passeggiata.
Painting, theater, music and architecture collided and collaborated in the Piazza Angelio. The set, if that’s the right term, was an enormous cube, fashioned from wood and translucent plastic sheeting, that dominated Barga’s largest square. Until 10 pm, it posed a silent metaphorical question mark for passersby and a full terrace of Osteria diners. Then, with clockwork precision, the static was suddenly converted to frenzied sound and movement.
Trumpet king/composer Andrea Guzzoletti and keyboard magician Simone Venturi, two of Italy’s outstanding jazz talents, began playing selections from Guzzoletti’s riveting “invisible Cities,” inspired by Italo Calvino’s famous prose poem – article here. Artists Fabrizio Da Prato and Keane, dressed in construction overalls and safety helmets and assisted by a muscle team, lifted the cube and lowered it over the musicans. In effect, they and their instruments were incarcerated in the huge hollow box, the exterior of which Keane and Da Prato set to painting.
