The commercial farm Col di Lamo extends up to eight hectares in the territory of Montalcino.
The property owner, Giovanna Neri, graduated in Law, got her passion for wine from her father and she is actually one of the most successful and valued winemakers.
One of the most fascinating aspects of Col di Lamo wines is the ability of Giovanna to spread love and respect her products in the same way as a woman, a mother, loves her son.
That is how she considers her “creations”: the Red Wine ofMontalcino, Brunello of Montalcino, Lamo and Eau-de-vie are the result of a winemaking process firsthand that Giovanna’s father taught her daughter.
Col di Lamo’s label has been creatively studied with the aim of showing the feminine touch: the delicate profile of a woman’s face and the colours orange and green of Lamo represent the image that Giovanna decided to give to her wine cellar and to her products.
He who becomes the slave of habit,
who follows the same routines every day,
who never changes brand,
who does not risk and change the color of his clothes,
who does not talk to people he doesn’t know
He who makes television his guru
He or she who shuns passion,
who prefers black on white,
and the dots on the "i" to a whirlpool of emotions,
precisely those that recover the gleam of the eyes,
smiles from the yawns,
hearts from the stumbling and feelings
He or she who does not turn things topsy-turvy,
who is unhappy at work,
who does not risk certainty for uncertainty,
to thus follow a dream,
those who do not forego sound advice at least once in their lives,
He who does not travel,
who does not read,
who cannot hear music,
who does not find grace in himself,
He who slowly destroys his self-love,
who does not allow himself to be helped,
who spends days on end complaining about his own bad luck,
about the rain that never stops,
He or she who abandon a project before starting it,
who fail to ask questions on subjects he doesn't know,
he or she who don't reply when they are asked something they do know,
Let's avoid death in small doses,
reminding oneself that being alive requires an effort far greater than the simple fact of breathing.
Only a burning patience will lead
to the attainment of a splendid happiness.
