A joyful red blend from perhaps our favorite Tuscan producer, Bertrand Habsiger of Fattoria di Caspri. His wines are the height of Italian natural wine: ageworthy but unadulterated, full of dark fruit, terrific acidity, and the tomato, earth, and cherry notes both Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo can impart. It's nice to see these Tuscan varieties blended: Sangiovese for strength, Ciliegiolo for flowers: La Vita Bella, indeed.

Fattoria di Caspri

Fattoria di Caspri


Fattoria di Caspri is a 9 hectare vineyard located in Tuscany, Italy. The expert Alsatian winemaker behind Caspri is Bertrand Habsiger, who selected out the Caspri property over 10 years ago when he was commissioned to make natural Italian wines. Before working at Caspri, Habsiger worked as a sommelier in several Michelin starred restaurants.

The goal at Caspri is to make the most natural wine possible, meaning no chemicals in the vineyard and no tilling; his treatments instead consist of hot water with herbs (tea) and cold water with extracts (decoction). In the cellar, Habsiger does not add yeasts or sulfites and does not filter his wines. What Caspri delivers is truly pure and expressive - we love his wines and his methods of getting there.
