2017 Gigi Rosso Toscana

Tuscany, Italy

Charming Italian table wine made from Sangiovese and Cabernet. A Wednesday night pizza wine if ever there was one.



About The Wine

Anthony D'Anna has been sourcing, importing and making wine in Italy for many years.

Through his long chats with the old locals about how things used to be done, Anthony conceived the Gigi label as a way to showcase the varieties and winemaking traditions of old.

The Rosso is made from a mix of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. It's made with minimal influence from the hand of the winemaker, concrete for ferment, no fining or filtration before bottling. 

It's a wine made for the people. It's a wine that is both savoury and bright. Earthy, spicy, sloshy and slurpable, this is a perfect mid-week red. Orader the pizzas, pronto.

From The Producer

Our first wine, 500 dozen made of a unfined, unfiltered Toscana Rosso aged in a mix of cement and old oak from mature vines in Tuscany shows for me, Tuscany in a different light. A light that existed before Tourism and mass market exposure of brands and marketing. If I had to pigeon hole this wine, it is. peasant wine,. Made without the use of most modern intervention. However, from the day it was fermented, it had a character and soul that has stood out and a personality that reminds me of those old souls that will soon only exist in black and white paintings....

Sealed under screwcap, this is am wine I a super proud of. It shows why Tuscany is such a gem of region. We can offer gigirosso that both show a sense of place and quality for the price.

Blend : Sangiovese (80%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%)
Drink Until : 2023
