Additional Information

Bivio Italia, which translates to 'fork in the road', signifies adventure and the joy of living life to the fullest. Crafted with hand-picked grapes from Italy’s most prestigious wine regions, Bivio Italia reveals Italy's renowned winemaking tradition in its own refreshingly modern style. Winemaker Marco Galeazzo creates richly textured, elegantly balanced wines that emphasize each region’s unique territorial and varietal character.

Bivio's Chianti and Tuscan Red are made in the heart of Tuscany, showcasing the rich fruit and earth characteristics of this famed region. Like the scooter, a timeless Italian icon, Bivio Italia celebrates the vibrancy and spirit of both classic and modern Italy.

Grapes making this wine are sourced entirely from the renowned Chianti region. The vineyards are located on well-exposed terrain at altitudes of 1,000 feet or more. Galestro clay soils impart the wine’s elegance and refinement, while the well-drained Albarese limestone soils impart rich and full-bodied characteristics.

The grapes were hand-picked in early October, undergoing four days of maceration and frequent pumpovers. Following temperature-controlled fermentation, the wine is aged in barrique for balance and softness.
