For the past 35 years, Leonardo LoCascio Selections has built a portfolio of producers that represent La Vera Italia, seeking up and coming appellations and staying at the cusp of Italy’s ever changing wine landscape.
Italy sits on the border of the African and Eurasian Tectonic plates which have propagated a majority of the volcanic eruptions and the active nature of the peninsula.
The volcanism of this dynamic peninsula has endowed history with countless legends, landscapes and ultimately some of the most expressive wines. In its inimitable way, Italy continues to bear fruit that leaves our palates thirsty for more and LLS represents the best expressions of Italy’s diverse volcanic terroirs.
