Maremma DOC 12 Uve - Paradiso di Frassina
Born from the careful selection of 12 different grape varietals; 6 native Tuscan grapes and 6 from France, all grown in the same vineyard near Cinigiano, on a hill shadowed by the Mount Amiata and not far from the sea. The 12 UVE wine is also called "Crazy Blend" and expresses its musicality in the biodiversity of its blend (imitating the musical scale with its 12 semitones). It ages for two and a half years in Allier oak barrels and refines for one year in bottle.
