This unique blend consists of 50% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot, and 25% Cabernet grapes from Podere Fornicchiaia, our vineyard near Siena. It is then fermented in cement tanks and then aged for 3-years in oak barrels.
This wine was dedicated to Orazio, Luigi’s father. He was a school headmaster in Tavarnelle Val di Pesa. Teacher Dei was known as a kind and authoritative person of great values. He passed along his wisdom to generations of students who still remember him with sincere admiration.
