Nemo I.G.T. Toscana


I.G.T. Toscana

In the mid-1970s, while the debate around whether or not international vines could be legitimately grown in central Tuscany was raging, Fabrizio Bianchi decided to plant Cabernet Sauvignon in the Il Mulino vineyard. The first harvest was produced in 1982, resulting in a wine that serves as a unique expression of the local area. Its name is inspired by the famous saying “Nemo propheta in patria” – no man is a prophet in his own land – a fitting description of the winery’s cutting-edge and pioneering spirit in those days.

Climate trend

Most Tuscan growers regard 1985 as one of the vintages of the Century. The winter was unusually cold – everyone remembers the freeze that year, which decimated the olive trees - and the spring was also rainy with below-average temperatures. However, the initiation of the vegetation cycle was generally routine and flowering and fruit set were good. At the end of July, weather conditions changed unexpectedly. A long, hot summer followed by nice weather that persisted throughout the period of the harvest assured a vintage of grapes that were healthy and endowed with extremely high levels of sugar.
