Bright pale pink in colour. An intense bouquet offering delicate fresh red fruit notes of black cherry, wild strawberry and raspberry with spring flower hints of sweet violet, rose and peony.


A combination of finesse and intensity, characteristics that resemble the heroine who inspired its name, the beautiful Sandrina Mari, “Pulcella del Valdarno” (“Maid of Valdarno”), who is featured on the label. A noble figure who was a fighter and a patriot, the young Alessandra, known as Sandrina, had the courage to challenge Napoleon, leading a volunteer army from Arezzo she’d recruited to defend the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.

 


 

Winemaking tradition has always been a permanent feature of Tenuta Scrafana, set within the unique landscape of the Montevarchi hills, and the agricultural calling of this land is attested by history.


Indeed, Tenuta Scrafana has been around since ancient times, and today 20 of its 50 hectares of land are vineyards. It also includes approximately 300 olive trees as well as a small, precious orchard of ancient tree varieties. 


Every single Scrafana product is a tribute to this magnificent land, and especially to the town of Montevarchi. That's why the prehistoric elephant was chosen as the Estate's symbol. This magnificent pachyderm, which roamed the area around two million years ago, with its fossil remains preserved in the Museo Paleontologico di Montevarchi (Montevarchi Paleontological Museum), encapsulates the unique magic of a “middle-earth” that's steeped in history and culture which, since the dawn of time, has seen the passage of heroes, wayfarers and pilgrims. One of them was the great Hannibal who travelled across Italy with elephants to challenge Rome.
