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.

The 2003 vintage will be remembered all over the country as one of the hottest and driest summers in the last century. The high temperatures and sunny weather started in the month of June and terminated at the end of October after the harvest season. The vintage was classified 4 stars by Chianti Classico Consorzio. The grapes didn’t suffer from over-ripening thanks to the “Galestro soil” in the Il Poggio vineyard, a calcareous schistose lime capable of retaining water in its layers.
