LADY F ORPICCHIO
In a land celebrated for its red wines, we felt compelled to make a great white, unique and distinctive, too, and for these reasons we made up our minds on planting an indigenous Tuscan variety called Orpicchio. To this day, we are the only ones to produce a wine using this grape and we strongly believe in its potential.
It’s a wine capable of great evolution and aging, with original and expressive aromas and taste. Our white.
