Back in 1985, a group of friends were feeling particularly resentful towards all the tourists in Tuscany, so they decided to purchase their own land, start a commune, and create a farm collective. Certified organic from the start, they grow a wide array of different crops. The vineyards are located at one of the highest elevations in Tuscany and have cooler temperatures, allowing for a more restrained alcohol content and generally elegant wines. ‘Il Rosso’ is not fined or filtered and has minimal addition of sulfur. This is a lovely Tuscan quaffer with bright red cherry fruit leading the palate with notes of dried rose petal and rustic Italian earth finishing with light dusty tannins.
