RED TUSCAN WINE geographic typical indication
Canaiolo has always been an underestimated grape variety, actually in its simplicity it astonishes by its freshness, intensity and firm structure, yet it is not too intrusive compared to the immediate drinkability and pleasure. Numero Otto is a niche product since harvest 2003. The producer is trying to explain the tuscan territory through its autoctonous vines that characterize the immense potentiality and diversity of it. Ageing in barriques for 8 months and further refinement in bottle.
The name Numero Otto is related to 4 factors: it is the eighth label born at Castelvecchio winery, it has aged for eight months in barriques, Otto is the name of Filippo’s Golden Retriever and finally the sign 8, is the infinity symbol and relates to the infinite emotions that each wine is able to transmit.
The original label has been elaborated on a first design of the florentine artist and restorer Chiara Piani.
