2015 Fertuna Pactio Maremma Toscana Rosso
Fertuna is located in the south of Tuscany in the Maremma. The winery Fertuna is owned by wine merchant Giuseppe Meregalli from Monza. He earned his money with the worldwide distribution of the wines of Sassicaia (Tenuta San Guido). The owner of San Guido, the Marquis Incisa della Rocchetta, even gave him a hand at the start and revealed some of his winemaker secrets. The Marquis now even draws 2 wines from this domain, namely the red wine Pactio and the white wine Droppello. The company is under the expert guidance of Paolo Rivella, descendant of another large winemaker family in Italy. His uncle is Enzio Rivella and was at the cradle of some large Tuscan domains such as Banfi and is still regarded today as one of the leading figures in the Italian wine world.
The domain is on the Roman Via Aurelia Gavorrano and lies between Grosseto and Folonica. In addition to the classic sangiovese, international varieties such as, merlot and cabernet sauvignon are also planted here. Remarkable is the Droppello, a white wine made from the sangiovese grape!
The Fertuna Pactio Toscana Rosso is a ruby red full wine with lots of red fruit with hints of vanilla. Is soft and fantastic in balance and has a nice structure. Delicious tannins, smooth and very elegant. This wine is the result of a collaboration with Marchese Nicolo Incisa della Rocchetta (Sassicaia San Guido).
