Manero Bianco di Toscana IGT
Toscana

The name Manero is inspired by the story of a well-known clown, Manero, who relentlessly played practical jokes on the local vintner. One day, he decided to challenge the Vintner by promising to create a wine far superior to his. Not long after when a crowd gathered to taste the clown’s wine, the Vintner, astonished, could not help but proclaim: ”Anyone who can create a blend this fine has my deepest respects, Manero!” And so the wine MANERO was born.
