  • Introduction

    • SPINNING BEAUTY – as a guiding inspiration – has accompanied a man’s work,
      passion and continuous quest for beauty.

      Like an invisible thread, it draws together a family’s history, its values, the spirit
      of a place and its traditions in an incessant motion towards the future.

      SPINNING BEAUTY, so rich in personality and charm was born from the oldest
      historical selection of the estate vineyard Monte della Torre and from hundred
      percent Sagrantino clone – Cobra.

      This wine has been inspired by the world’s greatest and most refi ned classics.
      Matured in french oak barrels for nine years.

    “… Dense tannins are tightly knit to an expressive range of black cherry coulis, cured tobacco, cocoa powder, loamy earth and licorice snap flavors. Fresh and focused even with 10 years of age on release, this remains graceful for the fine integration...”
