Sangiovese - Canaiolo - Colorino del Valdarno
Pian del Pino is a red wine from vineyards which were planted more 40 years ago. It is produced with Sangiovese, canaiolo and Colorino grapes. The last ones are an extraordinary variety of Colorino, characterised by small berries,which we have recently re-discovered and reproduced in a plant nursery. It is a wine characterised by stimulating and fragrant perfumes. It is an interesting match between tradition and innovation.
We decided to call it as the estate in order to identify it better with the area of production.
