Fedespina

Fedespina

IGT Toscana Rosso

The wine’s name comes from a family story handed down throughout the centuries.

The story recounts an ancestor of the Fedespina family, a certain Rossi, administrator of the property of the Marquis, who lived around the 15th century, and thwarted a conspiracy against the Malaspina Marquises.

As a reward of that faithful man’s fearless action, he was granted the surname Fedespina (“faithful to the Marquises”).

It has a ruby red color, and very slight aromas of small red berries, leather, pepper and mineral notes, and develops elegantly and deeply across the palate thanks to layered, silky tannins and to the freshness that lingers through the mineral finish. It has a spicy range with a high elegance potential in its expressiveness.
