Mutual Understanding that last through time

This wine is the winemaker’s homage to his wife, Margherita (daisy), a strong, understanding woman who loved him dearly and supported him throughout difficult periods of his life. Convinced that his success was due to her alone, he decided to express his gratitude with this wine, commissioning a Swiss designer to create a label in the name of their enduring love and beautiful story.

The story of the label: a taste of a bit of history…

The Swiss designer took his inspiration from the portrait of the Bella Simonetta, by the famous Italian painter Botticelli. Simonetta Cattaneo was the daughter of a noble Genoese family. She was married very young to Marco Vespucci, cousin of the explorer Amerigo, who was a member of a family of wealthy bankers with whom the Florentine Medici family wished to have a close relationship. Simonetta Vespucci was exquisite and elegant: her contemporaries judged her to be the most beautiful woman alive, a true incarnation of Venus.
