The foundations of the Podere San Luigi rest on the great passion for the wine of its founder, Fidenzio Toni, that it undertakes a long battle in order to obtain the “Indicazione Geografica Tipica” of the territory. Produced by this small estate just opposite the island of Elba where the superb vineyards and the elevated talents of winemaker Dott. Alberto Antonini regularly work their magic. The vineyards are approximately 35 years old and are planted with 6.000 vines per hectare of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
The Fidenzio is possibly the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon being produced at present in Tuscany along with Sassicaia. Probably, a fortunate and rare combination of great terroir and great human expertise makes Fidenzio so special in the over-crowded scene of Tuscan Cabernet Sauvignons. This is a rich, super-concentrated, barrique-aged Super-Toscano. Rock-hard aromas of cassis, brown sugar, lavender, lead pencil, rust and game.
