This wine is dedicated to Philip Mazzei (1730-1816), an illustrious ancestor of the family, political thinker, American Patriot and pioneer of the viticulture in Virginia together with Thomas Jefferson. Made with a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon selected from our estates, Philip is the quintessence of Tuscany. "The great doctrine 'All men are created equal', incorporated into the Declaration of Independence by Thomas Jefferson, was paraphrased from the writings of Philip Mazzei, an Italian-born patriot, and close friend of Jefferson's."

. 2011 was a challenging growing season in Tuscany due to shortage of rain and high summer temperatures. Yields were reduced in order to maintain quality standards. The alcohol is slightly higher than usual but the wines retain the balance expected from the Fonterutoli range.
