Dolce PeccatoSweet wine, Toscana IGP
Lying at the feet of the Pisan hills and dominated by the millenary Tower-House, Torre a Cenaia Estate has been for centuries the benchmark of the wine production of this fertile land, which has one of the most suitable soil and climate area of the western Tuscany. Ancient property of the Florentine Pitti family, it reflects the heritage handing down to posterity the pride and the noble history, embodied today in wines with a unique personality, deeply tuscan.
Dolce Peccato is a sweet wine with unique taste features, born by selected Sauvignon Blanc and Trebbiano grapes dried on racks for about two months. The grapes are pressed in December and ferment in Allier oak barrels.
