Since 2003 and only in the best years Casaloste bottles a superb IGT (Typical Geographical Indication): the Inversus. His name was inspired by a particular genetic condition (in Latin "Situs Viscerum inversus") for which all the main visceral organs positioned in a specular manner, without involving any health problem. The third son of Giovanni and Emilia, Federico, was born with this condition.
With this wine, which shows its fingerprint at the center of the label, we wanted to interpret the unpredictability of nature and its capacity to often being specular. Inversus, in fact, is a wine that marks an "inversion" of approach compared to other corporate wines. It is a new interpretation of the territory, able to express not only the greatness of its main vine, the Sangiovese, but also of the Merlot that in the land of Panzano in Chianti finds an excellent expression of its potential.
