Mito e Mistero IGT Toscano Rosso IGP (igt) Limited Edition

This wine is a blend of Sangiovese Merlot and Syrah, bottled for the 50th anniversary of the disappearance of Marilin Monroe.

The Milanese artist Giuliano Grittini on that occasion found a link between the two famous and everlasting women: Leonardo’s Mona Lisa and the famous actress Marilin. “The Myth and the Mystery” is a bond that, says Giuliano, is still found in all women today. Hence the label that represents them both in a limited and numbered edition.

Appearance deep ruby, nose wild red berry fruit, spices and subtle notes of vanilla. Palate warm, supple and expansive, with velvety tannins and with a crisp acidity; lengthy finish that completes a very harmonious wine
