Torre Del VajoRed 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.
Torre del Vajo is a Supertuscan born by a famous Italian winemaker and it’s the result of a rigorous selection of three noble grapes – Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah – that best express their taste features thanks to a long refinement in Allier oak tonneaux.
