Ottava Rima is characterized by its ruby red color and notes of fresh flowers and fruit. There’s hints of violet, cherry, and blackberry. The Ottava Rima is a slender-bodied wine with structure and balance. The tannins are not overpowering and the taste is fresh, with a soft finish.
The Ottava Rima is a young wine that is rustic and dark, made to remember the Contadin Tradition. This wine is based on the legend of poets, who sing songs and symbolize rebirth of nature. Leaving a laurel branch behind, farmers offer whatever they had in exchange for the wish of good season and growth from the Maggerini.
Tenuta L’Impostino is located on a farm in Maremma Tuscany. With a farm house and restaurant for guests to dine in, the area provides a rustic, homey feel. Each label of wine they make refers to a local myth, passed down from generation to generation.
