Meet Enrico; a Super-Tuscan! One of the most innovative and superlative red wines from Tuscany, Italy. From a selection of the best grapes harvested from the company, it boasts a plethora of luscious and complex flavours, that stays on the tongue. Named after Enrico Taddei (the great grandfather of Nicolo) who bought the winery in 1904. Borghese and proud, he was a humble man. When they produced this wine, the power and the character of this wine was the best way to honour his memory. And what better way?
Toscana to the Italians, Tuscany is the quintessential Italian wine region. Here, where the Renaissance was born and where wine has always been the most humble of Tuscan comforts—on the table at every meal (breakfast excepted); sometimes, with a piece of bread, a meal in itself. It’s where the wonderful folks at Fattoria Lornano practice a sustainable model of agriculture which promotes equilibrium with the environment and preserves natural resources. They've produced high-quality wines free of chemical fertilizers and herbicides, since fourth generation Pozzoli's, Nicolò and Galileo, commandeered the ship. Tuscan winemaking, for Tuscan people; It's a recipe that’s simple, and incredible!
