Desiderio was a bull which lived on Avignonesi’s Capezzine farm more than one hundred years ago. The largest bull in Tuscany at that time, this majestic animal helped define the Chianina cattle race, specific to the Bistecca Fiorentina. It came as a natural choice to dedicate this Merlot to the beloved bull as a testimony to the wines’ origin. This is Merlot from Tuscany at its best.
Ruby red.
On the nose notes of mint, coffee powder, cassis and pine forest come across.
On the palate elegant tannins give way to a deep velvety long-lasting finish.

From this winery:
