Intense nose with complex notes of blackberry and raspberry, tobacco and cinnamon spice, and flavors of dark chocolate. This wine is 100% Malvasia Nera, which at times is used to blend with Sangiovese, here winemaker Alessandro Griccioli renders it with balance and subtle tannin.

Arteliquida is a project where art and wine meet each other creating new shapes and taste identities every year. Arteliquida is not merely a label, but a visual expression of the many aspects belonging to the wine’s world, emphasizing wine research ( with the contained) as much as the artistic one ( with the bottle). This wine springs from the friendship between the producer Alessandro Griccioli and the artist Eugenia Vanni; they keep taking care of and enriching the project with new ideas and collateral events every year.
Using a single rare Tuscan grape, Malvasia Nera, Arteliquida Rosso opens new flavours from the grape and structures itself around minerals from the soils of Siena, Tuscany. Elegance froma delicate blackberry and hint of raspberry gives a smooth lasting flavour along with a full body from 18 months in our French oak barrels.
The label 2010: the contemporary artwork by Eugenia Vanni shows instinctive thinking, an image of moon which is actually a mosaic. This is linking the old knowledge of how the phases of the moon affect the winemaking process and when we transfer the wine inside the old cellars.
