Azienda Agricola Arrighi – “underwater winery” of the Wine Travel Awards at the Eccellenza di Toscana exhibition


Every year, the Wine Travel Awards is replenished with more and more interesting nominees; our community is expanding geographically and professionally, and some nominees surprise us with completely unique products. This season, the nominee with such a unique production is Azienda Agricola Arrighi, whose owner – seignior Antonio Arrighi, is called Multitalented Wine Entrepreneur.

In 2019, the world heard about Nesos – “underwater wine”, the recipe of which dates back to ancient times and is almost 2.5 thousand years old: before aging the wine in amphorae, grapes are immersed for a certain time in sea water, and then laid out to wither on the sun. The first release of Nesos was just 40 bottles, and the excitement surrounding the presentation was so great that only half of the two hundred journalists could get to the press conference.

Today Nesos can be tasted at seignior Antonio Arrighi’s wineries by pre-booked visit or at special events in which Azienda Agricola Arrighi participates.

On March 2 and 3, such an event will be the 22nd Eccellenza di Toscana exhibition, dedicated to the tasting of the best wines of Tuscany and organized by AIS Toscana. This will be held at Stazione Leopolda in Florence. The Nesos Azienda Agricola Arrighi tasting will take place on March 3. There is no doubt that at the Antonio Arrighi counter, as always, there is going to be a long line of people wishing to try the one-of-a-kind wine.

The presence of the grapes in salt water creates a marine note in the “nose” and the taste of ripe fruit in the “body”, and a large amount of mineral residues after maceration in clay vessels makes it less acidic.
