Far away from your average Tuscan red this is super wild & vibrant, carrying a spritz on opening - this is rustic heaven! Imagine just finishing a hard days work and getting a lift off the back of a horse drawn cart and a big chug of this! It’s plummy and cherry fruits are hard hitting and work wonderful with bbq!

Pacina, a hamlet just outside of Castelnuovo Berardenga, is named after the Etruscan god Pachna – the god that became Bacchus the Roman god of wine and revelry. Fittingly Giovanna and Stefano make wine here and work an estate that has existed since the fist millennium AD. The estate was previously a convent that was renowned for its olive oil, wine, cereals and fruits and vegetables.

Giovanna and Stefano continue this tradition to this day. They work their vines organically encouraging a vibrant ecosystem and make wine in a very traditional way with long macerations and minimal intervention. The vines are planted on fossil-rich limestone – the area was a sea many years ago. This soil contributes to the mineral backbone and vibrant acidity of their wines.
