Tasting Notes

Appealing floral scents along with plum, blueberry, black cherry, cherry candy, red licorice and leather will entice you to this Tuscan red. It is medium weight with red and black fruits, florality, black olive and woodsy flavors. This has fine tannins that grow slightly drying on the finish. The acidity allows it to be an excellent food partner.
 

WINE INFORMATION

The independent film Bella Vita is the story of surfer and environmentalist Chris del Moro, who with a group of surfing buddies, goes back to his ancestral homeland to survey the Italian surfing scene.  The film was made by Jason Baffa, who enlisted his friend fifth-generation winemaker Piergiorgio Castellani to provide support and advice on Italian culture, food, and wine.  The film is not the only outcome of this collaboration.  Baffa, affectionately known as Zio Baffa (“Uncle Baffa”) to the crew, together with Castellani, and del Moro made a trio of wines: Toscana Rosso, Pinot Grigio, and Prosecco.  All come from certified organic vineyards, are non-GMO, and vegan.  All energy used in their production comes from renewable sources, the bottles are made from recycled glass, the label paper is all certified sustainable by the Forest Stewardship Council, and the ink and glue are non-toxic.

Grapes for this wine comes from a twenty-year-old vineyard near Pisa owned by Castellani.  The soil is sandy calcareous clay rich in river pebbles.  Yields are fairly low, with each plant producing enough grapes to make one or two bottles of wine.  The grapes are fermented cool in tank for over 20 days, gently pressed, and aged in tank.
