Tenuta Di Ceppaiano ''Keith Haring'' Rosso 2015 - Tuscany, Italy
Varietals: 60% Sangiovese, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Merlot
Brilliant and intense ruby red color. Complex, with multiple layers of primary fruity aromas of wild roses, cherries, mint, cassis and licorice. Secondary aromas of resin, oak, leather and toasted sweet coffee. Intriguing taste mixing sweet flavor of white chocolate, vanilla and cedar on a buttery bed of oak verticalized by a gentle acidity. Long finish. Wonderful “Super Tuscan” blend.
In 1989 the Castellani Family invited Keith Haring to Pisa to realize what would become one of his most important permanent public works, the monumental mural "Tuttomondo".
On that occasion, the artist gave the family a wine label he had designed for the house wine of a friend’s restaurant, hoping that one day it could be used for a prestigious wine produced in Tuscany.
Today, more than 30 years later, this project finds its realization thanks to a special commemorative cuvee produced by the Castellani family in one of its best vineyards, in the Tenuta di Ceppaiano on the Tuscan coast. A special thanks goes to the Keith Haring Foundation which granted the use of the label design.
