“COSPAIA 1441” (Merlot 54%, Sangiovese 20%, Cabernet Sauvignon 26%) IGT 2016 750ml
- Reviews (0)
Cospaia 1441 takes its name from a tiny independent republic, created by a topographical error, which for almost four centuries, from 1441 to 1826, became a place of freedom between the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and the Papal States. This little-known historical adventure inspired the label of Cospaia 1441, designed by Studio Doni & Associati, on which there is a metaphysical vision of the legendary land crowned with its motto “Perpetua et firma libertas” (firm and perpetual liberty).
