||We dedicated our wine to the Etruscans who lived in this land, the first wine-growers in Italy. Atis was the name of a mythic king, grandchild of Zeus, which is at the origin of Etruscan people, according to a legend. The drawing represents a grape vine “married” to a tree, like it was grown by Etruscans. In the ancient poetry it was the indissoluble love metaphor.
