Oliviero Toscani: photographer, designer, thinker, mover, shaker, horse-breeder, want-maker and as of late, winemaker.
The new family business occupies 12 hectares of prime Tuscan wineland just outside Pisa.
Our wine, like our lives, is the image of past, present and future, filled with enthusiasm, passion, imagination, emotion, success and beauty.
Together with two of his four children, Rocco and Lola, both 20-something and already involved in the other family business, La Sterpaia, Toscani is producing a highly appreciated red found in some of the best enotecas in Italy.
The blend of 50% Syrah, 35% Cabernet Franc and 15% Petit Verdot currently has a production of 12 000 bottles a year.
Toscani has called in friend and 2009 Pritzker prize winner (one of my all time favorites), Swiss architect Peter Zumthor, to work on the design for a landmark winery. No doubt some exciting architecture on its way… Watch this space.
