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 Tuscan Red is made in the village of Gaggiano di Poggibonsi, in the province of Siena, in the heart of Tuscany. This wine showcases 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.

This wine is made from a blend of 65% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Merlot. Grapes are sourced from highly-acclaimed vineyards in southern Tuscany, and they prosper in the well-draining, high altitude hills where they develop body and fullness. Harvested in September, the grapes undergo 10 days of maceration and frequent pumpovers. Following temperature-controlled fermentation, the wines are aged in barrels eight to twelve months until bottling.
