ATIS


Bolgheri DOC Superiore

ATIS is our Superior Bolgheri and with it we express the greatness of our territory without modifying its essence, in a subtle equilibrium between our work and the naturalness of the earth and the vines. It is a wine in which Mediterranean power is mitigated by the innate elegance of the territory and its main variety, Cabernet sauvignon, with a little part of Merlot and Cabernet franc.
We dedicated our wine to the Etruscans who lived in this land, the first wine-growers in Italy. Atis was the name of a mythic king, grandchild of Zeus, which is at the origin of Etruscan people, according to a legend. The drawing represents a grape vine “married” to a tree, like it was grown by Etruscans. In the ancient poetry it was the indissoluble love metaphor.
ULMUS AMAT VITEM, VITIS NON DESERIT ULMUS; SEPAROR A DOMINA CUR EGO SAEPE MEA?
The elm loves the vine and the vine doesn’t desert the elm; why so many times am I separated from my beloved?

Ovidio, Amores, Elegia XVI
