From the island of Gorgona, the smallest island of the Tuscan archipelago, located 18 miles west of Livorno, a blend of Vermentino and Ansonica, varietals that are now perfectly acclimated to their island environment . “Gorgona” is a white wine born from the collaboration of Marchesi de’ Frescobaldi and the island’s penal institution. The Frescobaldi agronomists and oenologists have worked together with prisoners, teaching them important skills that can be used at the end of their detention for an easier reintegration into society. The Gorgona wine comes from a small vineyard of about one hectare, located in the only area sheltered from strong sea winds, in the middle of an amphitheater which overlooks the sea. The vineyard is managed by the prison inmates using organic farming techniques, and each vintage produces only 2,700 bottles.
