Le Vigni di Eli Blanco 2017, Marco de Grazia
The idea of "Le Vigne di Eli" was born from the desire to help the little ones: the estate's revenues go, in fact, to a pediatric hospital in Florence (called Mayer) and the labels (as you can see in the attachment) are drawn up by Marco's daughter, since she was 3 years old. Now she is 16. Le Vigne di Eli has the same winery/cellar, the same winemaker, the same vinification as the Tenuta delle Terre Nere, only different plots that Marco de Grazia (owner of both Terre Nere and Le Vigne di Eli) bought for their very high quality ... but that they are too small for Tenuta delle Terre Nere where they would lose their fantastic identity. In Le Vigne di Eli this comes out in a beautiful, powerful way.
