Toscana Casina

The grapes from the Casina vineyard, along with the produce of other younger vineyards, are the raw material of this pleasant, lively and highly drinkable wine. Casina is the name of a vineyard located near the village of San Martino al Vento, just below 400 metres above sea level. The soil consists mainly of Galestro, and the micro-climate is relatively cooler compared to the other vineyards of the estate. These peculiarities contribute to defining the lively character of the wine, endowed with a crisp, slightly spicy taste and a bright and brilliant ruby red colour.
