Wine facts

Label Notes:

The label represents the Marquis Henry II Gondi of Florence, the first owner of Fattoria di Grignano. In the XV century the farm of Grignano belonged to the Medici family. At the time, the pope Alessandro VI Borgia was a very close enemy of them and when the he excomunicated the Medici family, in those years a very serious measure for the prestige of every Royal family, Henry II Gondi intermediated between them and succeeded to cancel the excomunication. For this help, the Medici family donated the farm of Grignano to him and he became the first owner of the estate which nowadays is our Company.
