Gaspero

IL GALLO NERO:
From our vineyards in the municipality of Castellina in Chianti, the noble land of origin of Sangiovese, from deep, extremely rocky soils with very little organic substance, where the fruit is a gift rewarding great wisdom and sacrifice. A long-lived wine with a very distinctive character.
