About the Icons
A Seasonal Rosé Wine Club Selection
Val di Toro is a small, family-owned winery in the heart of Maremma in Southern Tuscany, near the sea. Founders Anna Maria Cruciata—originally from Sicily—and her husband, Hugh Constable Maxwell moved to Maremma, drawn by the beauty of the countryside and with the dream of starting their own winery. They repurposed the fields that were formerly used for breeding Maremman bulls, turning them into vineyards—hence the name of the winery.

Val di Toro is comprised of over 60 acres of farmland and vineyards, with about 33 acres under vine, planted to varieties typical to the area: primarily Sangiovese, with a little Montepulciano, and Vermentino and Grechetto for the whites. The winery, set up in 2003, is certified organic in every aspect of production. Both in the field and in the cellar, the winemaking process is conducted with the highest level of care and respect for the environment, and with minimal intervention.

100% Sangiovese, the grapes were harvested by hand and carefully selected specifically for making rosé wine via the saignée method. The vinification took place entirely in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats, and the wine was aged an additional 5 months in stainless steel before being bottled.

Delicate aromas of red fruit. Delightful flavors of alpine strawberry, mandarin, melon and orange blossom. Bright and juicy with a chalky mineral finish.
