The story! Just outside of Florence, the region of Chianti Rufina produces some of the best values in Tuscany. Villa di Vetrice, named after the 11th century estate villa at the heart of the estate, is no exception. They grow both olives and grapes on the rolling hills, pouring passion for the land into every bottle.

In your mouth: Elegant aromas of dark cherries and tobacco invite you into my soft, dark depths. Take another sip: let my fine-grained tannins wash over your tongue, carrying notes of licorice and spice, plum and and bright berry. I linger long after your glass is finished, tempting you toward another bottle.
