Variety: Syrah, Sangiovese, and Gamay
Maesta Della Formica, meaning “majesty of the ant” is a relatively new producer founded in just 2013. After oenology and viticulture school at the University of Pisa, there began a common goal from two friends of growing Riesling in peaks of Tuscany. Along with this focus began a series of other international varieties, like those of Gamay and Syrah. The wines have very low intervention with marketing that is both playful and honest. Beyond the vines, they also cultivate other agriculture that do well in the high altitude areas of Tuscany, like chestnuts, juniper, and blackthorn.
Aromatics from a red Burgundy, spices you’d get from a Rhone red, and the soils of Tuscany and you’ll have the Gamo Rosso. This wine is all about its lightness and elegance while being versatile and food friendly.
