Arturo IGT Rosso Toscano 2015
An unforgettable red for special occasions
"...to the nose full and enveloping with ample aromatic background; immediately red fruits of underbrush and crème de Cassis, floral notes of violet, green olive, saturnine peach, to close balsamic notes of mint and eucalyptus. On the palate it is full, enveloping with a dense silky tannic texture and a good acid-base with confirmation of the olfactory richness; on entering the mouth small red fruit that gives way to balsamic leaf sensations. A great Tuscan Red..."

Wine and Vintage
"...for the production of Arturo, the best Sangiovese grapes of the estate are harvested in boxes and partly dried in the drying room to enhance the durability and complexity of the wine. The wine then spends two years in the historic cellar to smooth out the youthfulness of the tannins and to enhance the best aromatic background of Sangiovese and our vineyards. Arturo has a very long evolutionary path that can continue for decades in the bottle and embodies the highest expression of the company's reds ..."

The historical label is made up of two squares surmounted by the company logo that recalls the tradition of the Tuscan flask. In the upper purple box stands the inscription Arturo, the lower box is in turn divided into nine parts with the symbols representing our work: the ear of wheat, the vine leaf, the chalice, water, sun, shell, wind, pi and moon. A white frame on which runs a golden thread surrounds the composition.
The restyling of the label lightens the shapes and colors while maintaining the original elements. The significant white background takes strength and four simple elements stand out on it: the rose window, a symbol of purity and complexity, the wine's proper name with its geographical qualification and the frame of the symbols compressed and defined by a red thread with an upside-down inscription in the style of Leonardo da Vinci. At the base, in gold, the name of our winery.
