Florence has been famous for textiles longer than it has been famous for wine. The city became a center of wool production in the 13th century, and together with founding the modern banking industry, the city also pinned its wealth on the production of wool, silk and velvet worn by nobles across Europe in the late middle ages. That fame never exactly faded, so when the Fashion-famous Inghirami family were looking to buy a vineyard in Chianti in the 1970s, they were looking to dip into Florence’s “new” thing: wine. They selected the historic Gignano estate in Chianti, once owned by Caterina De Medici. Today, of the 600 hectare property, 200 are devoted to olive groves and 50 to vineyards. Much of their vineyard is devoted to Chianti, but for the Seta Toscana Rosso, Sangiovese is blended with one quarter each Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, for a rich, dark, wine with much to offer to Pizzas, grilled meats, and cheesy pasta dishes. Cranberry, black cherry, a splash of vanilla and all the herbs in Italian seasoning mark the nose, while the palate is etched with a black charcoal pencil in tannins, with black plum and blacker cherry, tarry earth and dried herbs.
