Cenaja Vermentino Toscana IGP CruOrganic wine
In the heart of Torre a Cenaia Estate, on the banks of a lake exposed to the sea-wind, the vineyard of “Casone” has been fructifing flourishing for more than thirty years. Here, thanks to a careful selection of the grapes and a hand-picked collection, the Cenaja Vermentino comes to life as our best cru wine. In the encounter between our land and the Tyrrhenian Sea, in a highly vocated terroir, under the wise guidance of a great Italian oenologist, this white wine acquires surprising tasting characteristics.
