The wine prepares the hearts and makes it ready for passion. (Ovid)

This wine is the company’s top product in terms of quality, research and development. It comes from a vineyard planted with Merlot of 0.7 acres situated on the top of a hill. The particular composition of the soil, rich in fossil shells and tuff, give this Merlot a wonderful minerality. Passion and modern procedures such as the integral system (fermentation and aging in the same barrel) make this our favourite wine. The 95100 rating awarded by the Veronelli guide in 2008, confirming that Tuscany still has areas to be discovered and exploited.
