Gorgona Rosso

Costa Toscana IGT

The Tuscan Archipelago is an earthly paradise, of which Gorgona is the wildest, most luminescent of Aphrodite's pearls. Beyond its apparent sullenness lies the indescribable seduction of perfumes and silences, and a natural beauty that moves you with its strength and eternal growth... And around it, water and salt reflect messages from the heavens and bind laces to the sails. (A. Bocelli - 2014) THE GORGONA PROJECT The Gorgona project began in August 2012 thanks to the partnership between Frescobaldi and Gorgona, the only island penitentiary in Europe. Inmates spend the final years of their sentence here, working and living in close contact with nature, while developing skills to support their return to society and the workforce. Focussing on a small vineyard at the centre of an amphitheatre overlooking the sea, the project aims to provide inmates with practical experience in the areas of grape cultivation and winemaking by working closely with Frescobaldi agronomists and oenologists in the island's vineyards. The Gorgona Rosso label is dedicated to hope and the desire for rehabilitation, with the wish that the inmates' wine-growing experience can help them turn the page upon re-entry into society.

Technical notes

During the 2018 season, autumn and winter were mild with normal levels of rainfall. Rainfall became more intense in spring—particularly in April and May—before gradually subsiding during the summer months, which were hot and dry. Conditions in September—which is always a breezy month—were particularly beneficial, with sunny days, mild temperatures (23-26°C) and very rare storms.

Organoleptic Notes: Encapsulating the perfect balance of the season that created it, Gorgona Rosso 2018 is a wine whose strong Mediterranean character is, once again, truly striking. Its bright, vibrant and intense ruby-red colour is utterly enchanting. The bouquet is rich with notes of ripe red berries accompanied by scents of Mediterranean scrub vegetation, including thyme, myrtle, mastic, strawberry tree and carob tree, and finishes with a hint of oriental spice. Its velvety-smooth character, freshness and alcohol come together in perfect harmony when tasted. Magical and unconventional, its finish is as eclectic as its overall form.
