Fufluna

The Wine

A youthful red blend characterized by a strong bouquet that is fruit forward, fresh, and lively. It was aged in stainless steel to showcase the terroir and grape varieties.

Fufluna is based on the Fufluns from Populonia, which were considered the Etruscan gods of wine. Poggio Rosso translates to ‘Red Hill.’ The shell image is from Etruscan pottery found in the area of Populonia.

The People

The Monelli family owns Tenuta Poggio Rosso, a winery they revitalized in the area where their peasant ancestors lived. This region is expressed through the flavor of the sea, the minerality of the soil and the elegance obtained within the vineyards.
