ROSATO DI TOSCANA IGT “MARì``
Marisa, for decades a source of courage and tenacity for our family, was the source of inspiration for the production of this young and dynamic rosé, a direct expression of a lively and enterprising territory. For many years the rosé has been associated by the collective imagination as a wine for summer consumption, with this version we want to offer it as a product suitable for all occasions and seasons.
There is a strong predominance of Sangiovese integrated with other varieties such as Canaiolo and Merlot in variable percentages according to the year.
