This is a joint venture between Piero Masi, a Tuscan winemaker and wine writer, producer and innovator Steven Spurrier, who founded the Wine Society of India on one of his frequent visits.

The climate is sub-tropical but the altitude of 650 metres gives cool nights, which ensures the grapes retain their freshness. This 100% Sangiovese is a vibrant     rose-petal colour, with aromas of summer red berries giving way to the light, refreshing palate.
