Spinorosso

Spinorosso

IGT Toscana Rosso

Since Medieval times, our farm has played a part of the fief or estate named Spino Secco, and was under the influence of a branch of the Malaspina Marquises.

For this reason, we believe this wine merits being called Spinorosso.

The beauty of the vineyard from which it comes, and the natural quality it brings increases the value of the antique territory.
