ROSSO TOSCANO 2020
INDICAZIONE GEOGRAFICA TIPICA
Arteliquida is a project where art and wine meet, emphasizing wine research (with the contents) as much as the artistic expression (with the container). Arteliquida Rosso joins the single-vineyard rare Malvasia Nera, with the contemporary artwork by Eugenia Vanni, where a mosaic moon represents the mysterious and unbreakable link between nature and man, which symbolized the legendary knowledge about the moon phases' influences in the winemaking process. Our small cru enhances the varietal characteristics of Tempranillo, in Tuscany known as Malvasia Nera, which here presents a unique freshness and minerality typical of the Chianti terroir.
