Desiderio was a bull who lived on Le Capezzine farm in Avignonesi over a hundred years ago. The largest bull in Tuscany at that time, this majestic animal helped define the Chianina beef breed, specific to the Florentine steak. It was a natural choice to dedicate this Merlot to the beloved bull as a testimony to the origin of the wines. This is Merlot from Tuscany at its best.
