 "The Tuscan archipelago is an earthly paradise of which Gorgona is the wildest and most luminescent pearl of Aphrodite. his eternal puberty .... And all around, water and salt, reflecting the messages of heaven, tightening the laces to the sails. " (A.Bocelli - 2014)

The Gorgona project was born in August 2012 thanks to the collaboration between Frescobaldi and Gorgona, the only penitentiary island in Europe. Here the inmates spend their last sentence, working in contact with nature to develop professional skills that facilitate their reintegration into work and society. Around a small vineyard, in the heart of an amphitheater overlooking the sea, the project begins, the aim of which is to allow prisoners to have a concrete and active experience in the field of viticulture, with the collaboration and supervision of agronomists and Frescobaldi oenologists. Gorgona Rosso sees the light with the 2015 harvest, from some rows of Sangiovese and Vermentino Nero, grown in organic farming and then refined in terracotta jars. The Gorgona Rosso label is dedicated to hope and the desire for rehabilitation: with the hope that the important viticulture experiences acquired by the prisoners can help them write a new page when they return to society.

Climate trend

Season 2019 it was characterized by a winter with rainfall below the seasonal average. These precipitations intensified during the spring period, especially during the month of May, which was cool and mild at the same time. The months of June, July and August were hot with isolated rain showers well placed to avoid risks of water stress for the vine. The grapes ripened perfectly and arrived healthy at the time of harvest. September stood out for a beautiful day-night temperature range, ideal for slow and optimal ripening.

Organoleptic notes: Gorgona Rosso 2019 makes us infatuated again, with its wonderful vital and elegant personality. His charisma captures the senses and hits the mark, fascinating as never before; dazzles the color, bright and alive.

The fruity note is distinctive with hints reminiscent of ripe red fruits such as strawberry tree when sweet, Mediterranean scrub such as myrtle, juniper and finally rosemary.

Notes of softness and freshness emerge on the palate, with peaks that are never excessive but always perfectly integrated. The tannin is present but velvety.
