Red tuscan wine typical geographic indication

This wine is made from a particular blend.The producer aspires to find the perfect harmony among the 3 grapes,respecting the nuances of every vintage. Hand picked selection of the grapes and the result of an accurate vinification process. Ageing of 12-15 months in new French barriques (oak) and further refinement in bottle.

The name of the wine recalls the gravel,in particular the small pebbles that cover the country roads. Also used to drain the vineyards, the name underlines the strong link with the territory as the first wine made under Filippo Rocchi’s direction.
