The Terroir

The Tuscan taste of harmony
The Terroir

Each piece of the earth has a taste signature all its own. Natural sites in the same region share similar geography, geology and climate, which all contribute to the unique qualities of a product, giving it a distinctive flavor such as the smooth and velvety taste of Acqua Panna

You have probably heard about the word terroir when talking about wine. Terroir is defined as the sum of all the natural parameters which may potentially influence the character and characteristics of a product. Similar to wine, the character of a water will depend on its terroir and the nature of the aquifer, as well as the porous rock through which the water trickles.

Geography, geology and climate combined with the proverbial Tuscan savoir faire determine the uniqueness of all local products. Among them: extraordinary wines like Chianti, Brunello, Vernaccia, unrivaled extra virgin olive oil, known as the Green gold of Tuscany, the famous Florentine steak, and the well-known pecorino cheese, just to mention a few.
