Staff Pick Notes

This delicious red wine from Tuscany rests for about two weeks on the skins and, after that, for twelve months in barrels. The grape used for this wine, Colorino was, in the past, mostly blended with Chianti to give color. Used alone it creates a wine with a great flower bouquet and smooth pleasant tannins .Guido Gualandi, the producer, uses organic practices. In addition, wine making practices come from Roman and Renaissance times: the wines are made using only wooden barrels and terracotta and wooden vats. Full of raspberry and strawberry flavor. A touch of rusticity makes this wine a delicious drink!
