2019 Il Palagio 1530 Rosso Toscana
The Sting and Trudie's Il Palagio 1530 Rosso Tuscany is the newest wine from the Sting estate, and what a one! Dark ruby red color. In the nose a lot of red fruit, with a small hint of vanilla. Aromas of lots of red fruit including cherries and raspberries. Very nice and soft tannins, full and round. The wine is aged for 12 months in wooden barrels, then rests for 4 months in the bottle. This wine will be the flagship of Tenuta Il palagio. This anniversary wine is based on the date Il Palagio was founded (1530). Very limited availability.
Il Palagio is a wine estate located near the medieval town of Figline Valdarno known as the 'Farm of Florence'. They owe this nickname to the abundance of maize that used to be there. Baci sulla Bocca is the first wine of Il Palagio 1530 which has been accompanied by the famous couple from the juice to the final bottle. The number 1530 is the year Il Palagio started actively producing wine. In addition to the existing range and this top white wine from Il Palagio, there will also be a high-quality rosé called Brand New Day - named after a well-known song by Sting.
For me, life in Il Palagio is like living in a painting. It is one of the favorite places on earth: the atmosphere for Sting and his wife Trudy. The atmosphere you breathe there is magical,” says musician Sting. “We have always kept a lot of our property in Tuscany, also because of what the land has been able to give us,” confesses Trudie Styler, actress, director, producer and entrepreneur, as well as the singer's wife. Years ago when Trudy was looking for a house in Italy, the real estate agents thought she wanted a palace with frescoes on the walls and ceiling. But Trudy is a farmer's daughter and she was looking more for a place where they could set up an ecological farm.
