A single owner, a single winemaker, three cellars in the three principal Tuscan wine making areas, a terrific synergy between Elisabetta Gnudi Angelini's properties, but no common wine. To answer this lack, a new Sangiovese IGT made from grapes from the three estates, Caparzo, Borgo Scopeto and Doga delle Clavule. The family crest works surprisingly well to illustrate the concept: the shield bears three roses that represent the three estates.
