iTOSCANI

Syrah, Teroldego

To enchance the characteristics of both grapes and make a wine that expresses the peculiarity of the blend, Teroldego undergoes a really short maceration more akin to a rose in colour, before blending with Syrah, which is co-fermented with a small percentage of Petit Manseng and Greco. This delivers a wine that is a perfect mix between broad and soft dark fruits of Teroldego and soft spiciness and delicate tannins of Syrah.

Deeply inked with an intense purple hue, this unusual wine made of Syrah and Teroldego, offers juicy dark fruits, enriched by fine black pepper flavours, unforgettable spiciness and fresh tobacco. Layers of primary aromas are underlined by a perfect balance between the crisp freshness and the finesse of tannins.

The label of iToscani is inspired by Oliviero’s late father Fedele Toscani, and his agency’s “Rotofoto” logo. “Rotofoto”, a photo agency that mainly collaborated with the Italian newspaper “Corriere della Sera”, was founded in 1946, and is seen as the beginning of everything the Toscani family has created after. The logo’s brick red colour not only represents the red soils of our vineyards, but inspires us to think of the ruby red hue our wine creates on the rim of the glass. The elegant round circles signify the complex structure yet finesse of the wine, and the play between the contrasting white and red colours stand for the intensity and light(ness), while simultaneously impersonating the perfect symbiosis between the Syrah and Teroldego grapes from which the wine is made.

LOLÍ

Syrah

A one-of-a-kind sparkling rose wine made entirely from Syrah that undergoes the second fermentation in the bottle. 

The wine shows a bright salmon pink color and a fine, elegant and persistent perlage. On the nose - an explosion of red fruits, underlined by the notes of rose petals and fresh apples. Brilliant in the mouth with its crisp acidity and addictive minerality. Fresh, well balanced and intense wine with real personality and character.

The unique and joyful Lolí has a truly magical story behind it. It all started as a game - noticing that a lot of potentially good fruit was thrown away during the green harvest, Rocco decided to experiment and wait until early August to pick the underripe bunches of Syrah and make a light rosé wine. The quality of the finished fermented wine with its crunchy acidity and amazing fruit profile was so encouraging that it seemed a waste not to try to put the wine through the second fermentation in the bottle. The result is so fascinating that only the mystical flying horse that was the company’s first logo, seemed to explain the strength and power that every bottle of Lolí keeps inside.

quadratorosso

Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Teroldego

An unusual blend of Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Teroldego, 
“quadratorosso” undergoes malolactic fermentation in oak, 
creating this wine’s signature round tannins and silky mouthfeel. 
Deep crimson in colour with violet hues, on the nose fresh
red fruits dominate complemented by intense oriental spice
and subtle floral notes of rose petals and violet. 
The palate is fruit forward and concentrated, 
and the exceptional finish is a hallmark of the wine.

Quadratorosso is inspired by Oliviero’s favourite painting - Red Square by Kasimir Malevich (1915), known for showing a strong political statement through the art. The painting - what we see as an asymmetrical square is the shape of Monteromboli, the estate’s main vineyard, and represents all things rebellious that one can find in the glass of Quadratorosso. Both the painting and wine share a compelling and intense red colour, followed by an unusual message (or the blend) of Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Teroldego with its smooth and intriguing mouthfeel, while having the elegance and self-irony only few can have.

Lumeo

Syrah 

Rigorous selection of the best grapes of Syrah from Monteromboli vineyard is followed by fermentation and long maceration in amphorae. The result is beautifully satisfying, offering us a great example of a Tuscan coast Syrah. 

Lumeo with its inky deep purple colour and intensely liquorish nose filled with wild berry characters, is an absolute and pure fruit extract.  Vivacious layers of fragrant berries and intriguing spices are complemented by a surprising freshness. Its fine-grained silky tannins are in a perfect balance with its lively acidity. Elegant and finely structured wine with a long and intense finish, that will continue to develop for many years to come. Lumeo shows itself to be thought provoking and intriguing with its splendid aroma profile and mouthwatering chewy fruit flavours. 

Our estate’s first 100% Syrah wine Lumeo is inspired by the life and habits of our homing pigeons. Known for their faithfulness, energy and elegance, homing pigeons are a great symbol for this new generation wine, that with all its fruity character showing the full potential and power of Syrah, still retains its family’s style. To complement the beauty and curiosity of the birds, a great passion of Rocco, the wine brings the name that is combination of Rocco’s own children, Luce and Romeo.

OT

Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot

Made only from the best hand-selected bunches from the Monteromboli vineyard, this wine is matured in French oak for at least 12 months, followed by 36 months in bottle prior to release.

With its deeply inky colour, this wine has been lovingly nurtured for 12 months in oak. The nose displays seductive aromas of exotic spice, freshly cracked pepper, sweet red fruits and underlying herbaceous complexity. The palate is broad and concentrated, intensely flavoured but balanced by fresh acidity with soft, smooth tannins and lingering finish.

OT is our estate’s flagship wine. While every vintage represents the epitome of what the vineyard has to offer, the meticulous blend of wine never changes: Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
