Pinot Nero 2019

“High up in the hills above the town of San Casciano dei Bagni, at 650m of altitude, I found a small vineyard of pinot noir and from there began my Sancaba project, a wine making project that would express the elegance of the varietal together with the character of my terroir.” Carlo Franchetti
