Frescobaldi Gorgona 2016 750ml


$159.99 NZD




From the island of Gorgona, the smallest island of the Tuscan archipelago, located 20 miles west of Livorno, a blend of Vermentino and Ansonica, varietals that are now perfectly acclimated to their island environment. “Gorgona” is a white wine born from the collaboration of Marchesi Frescobaldi and the island’s penal institution. The Frescobaldi agronomists and oenologists have worked together with prisoners, teaching them important skills that can be used at the end of their detention for an easier reintegration into society. The Gorgona wine comes from a small vineyard of about one hectare, located in the only area sheltered from strong sea winds, in the middle of an amphitheater which overlooks the sea. The vineyard is managed by the inmates using organic farming techniques and the last vintage produces only 3850 bottles (3700 0,75 lt and 150 Magnum).
