Valentini is an idiosyncratic producer. For many years the estate was run by Edoardo Valentini, who with rare exceptions spoke of his wines only in the most general terms. He did not discuss his production methods beyond stating that in his cellar he only used large oak casks, never steel or plastic. He did not have a web site, nor would he communicate by e-mail.
Edoardo Valentini died in 2006, and his son Francesco now runs the estate, clinging to his father’s policies and methods.
