The playful name of this wine was inspired by the sea breeze, sun, and cheerful and light-hearted outlook of the Tuscan coast.
The term means sea view and is often used by the coastal hoteliers to entice would-be guests, even though their rooms may only offer a limited view of the Mediterranean.
The vineyards used for Vistamare actually enjoy a panoramic view of the Tuscan horizon and their grapes are gently inebriated by the saltine air and brilliant colors of the Tuscan sea.

Appellation: TOSCANA, Indicazione Geografica Tipica.
