Magliano in Toscana is a hillside town in the Tuscan Maremma much appreciated for its city walls and monuments. The ruins of Heba, an ancient Etruscan city, are extremely interesting. Heba yielded important information about Etruscan civilization and its governors, called Lucumoni. Lucumone is a fresh, fruity wine produced from 100% Vermentino Bianco grapes. With the name Lucumone, the Mantellassi family pays tribute to the Etruscans.
