Gorgona” is a white wine born from the collaboration of Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi and the island’s penal institution. The Frescobaldi agronomists and oenologists have worked together with prisoners, teaching them important skills that can be used at the end of their detention for an easier reintegration into society. TASTING NOTES: The wine appears a shimmering straw yellow, with subtle greenish highlights. On the nose, scents of hawthorn blossom duet with more decisive notes of citron and citrus, and with well-ripened tropical fruit, while aromas of blueberry and green tea are evident on the finish. The palate is immediately alluring, with an acidity that fashions a cleanly-delineated structure and gives the wine its superb crispness; the acidity, a hint of iodine, and a vein of earthy mineral are all beautifully enveloped by a velvety texture that renders the wine exceptionally well-balanced and pleasurable.
