"In 1997, Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler, bought and restored Il Palagio, a 16th century Tuscan estate. The property is located in the town of Figline Valdarno, about 45 minutes southeast of Florence, and consists of a large villa, olive groves and vineyards. Careful nurturing of the vines over the last ten years under the expert guidance of biodynamic viticulturist Alan York has yielded extraordinary grapes and the decision to release three wines. All are biodynamically farmed and made by leading Italian enologist Paolo Caciorgna, who consults for many esteemed wineries."
"When We Dance is a glorious, ruby red color and a palate that is balanced and smooth. This fresh, light everyday wine exudes charm, violets and bright red cherry fruit."~Winery notes
