Ribellante

IGT Toscana Bianco

Why this name?

Dante Alighieri, in his Divine Comedy, to explain why Latin poet Virgilio wasn’t allowed in Heaven, has him say: “Because I was rebellious against God’s law” (since he was born before the Christian era).

In this way we want our wine to be “rebellious” against the common wisdom that Tuscany can’t produce great white wines.

This is the challenge we took up with this great Tuscany wine. It’s powerful and delicate, sapid but fresh, with hints of grapefruit, mirabelle and elegant mineralogy.
