Il Grullaio Red Coast Tuscany IGT - Usiglian del Vescovo

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot (50:50), Grullaio is a rich, full-bodied Tuscan red. Intense ruby red, fruity nose with scents of red fruit, the taste is full-bodied and captivating. Another very pleasant red by Usiglian del Vescovo!

The story of Usiglian del Vescovo is one of the most compelling we have ever heard. Dating back to the Middle Ages, it was a fiefdom of the Bishops of Lucca and the subject of continuous claims by the Republic of Pisa. It then passed under the control of Florence in 1406, until in 1495 the inhabitants of Pisa occupied the castle putting the Florentine command on the run (only temporarily). And until the current ownership came in (in 2001) there were many owners who took turns in the ownership of the castle. Artisanal management, as you can imagine in a classic country house: grapes harvested by hand and wine entirely produced and bottled on site. In short, a jewel of the past. A beautiful bright ruby red, it really shouts “country” at you: earthy, wild and with notes of underbrush. The flavour is full of well-balanced sensations, with a lively acidic finish.
