Sixteen was sacred to the ancient Etruscan civilisation. In their language, the word “Śazar” indicates this number. The celestial vault was divided into sixteen sectors in their cosmology and space and time were also divided into sixteenths. This link between the sky, the position of the sun and the earth reflects our way of dealing with nature: listening to it and letting ourselves be guided by it. Śazar is a subtle, balanced, elegant and fruity wine expertly made from the ancient Alicante grape, brought to Maremma by the Spaniards in the 17th century, at the time of the State of the Presidi, known in the area as Tinto di Spagna. Its fruity and elegant bouquet are its strengths.

VINIFICATION Malolactic fermentation takes place in concrete vats.
AGEING In steel tanks and then in concrete tanks at a later

The sound of the Etruscan language is echoed in the names of these wines,
in which the history and uniqueness of the territory
and its vines resonate in a new and surprising way.
Elegantly transparent, bright ruby red.
The wine is striking for its elegant, intense fruitiness and clean, expressive bouquet, in which notes of morello cherry, cherry and small ripe red berries can be identified. Great harmony and balance between the components in the mouth, in particular the roundness of the tannins supported by a crunchy, tantalising acidity that invite you to drink. Typical Mediterranean full-flavoured finish.
Seafood and meat starters. Excellent as an aperitif.
14-15 °C in medium size glasses.
