IGT TOSCANA ROSSO “TERRAdelNICCHIO”

The name of this wine comes from the characteristic of soil in the vineyard where grapes are grown. The soil contains lots of fossil shells which testify to the presence of the sea in prehistoric times.

The soil is a medium mixture composed by clay and sand that gives the wine its fruity scent, and by silt that gives it structure.
