Aqua di Venus

The story

According to the Greek poet Homer, Venus was the daughter of Jupiter and the ocean nymph Dione. The goddess was born emerging from the sea on a large shell. Botticelli depicted The Birth of Venus in one of the most iconic works of art of the Renaissance. Completed in 1485, the painting was commissioned by the court of Lorenzo the Magnificent. Botticelli’s Venus continues to be a global icon of elegance and sensuality.

Winemaking notes

The grapes are pressed very gently so as not to lose the primary aromas. Following the natural clarification of the must, fermentation takes place in steel at a low temperature. The wine is aged in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.


Light pink.


Subtle aromas of wild strawberries, spices and an icy touch.

Tasting profile

Gentle flavors lead to a distinctive, bold and well-defined palate. The finish stands out with a straightforward mineral profile.

A rosé reminiscent of Provence with a deeply Tuscan character.
