Geggiaiolo Toscana IGT

  • Geggiaiolo, our Supertuscan, with its grapes of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah mixed in equal parts, reflects the identity of our precious land. The three vines are well harmonised in this rich and structured but velvety wine that will certainly satisfy the wishes of a less traditional glass.
