“Orma del Diavolo”
Rosso Toscana IGT
Organic

Orma Del Diavolo draws its strength from the name of the vineyard from which it comes, an ancient rock on which is imprinted a form that in the past colonists had identified as the footprint of a Devil. Bordeaux blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, is one of our most harvested wines thanks to the vineyards planted more than forty years ago.
