This is undoubtedly the question we get asked most often. This unique animal adorning our bottles catches people's attention, but quite frankly there is no real connection between this animal and LA SPINETTA. The unspectacular truth is that Giorgio Rivetti has always been a great admirer of this celebrated drawing and woodcut by the German artist Albrecht Dürer, and therefore decided to depict the image on the labels of LA SPINETTA's wines. Although there is no LA SPINETTA rhino story, there is certainly a great story behind this particular rhino, which is perhaps why Giorgio fell in love with this artwork. The drawing records the arrival of an Indian rhinoceros in Lisbon, Portugal in 1515. It was the first animal of its kind to be seen in Europe. As a gift from the governor of Portuguese India to the king of Portugal, a fight between a rhino and an elephant was arranged. The story goes that the elephant turned and fled. Tasting Notes: Ripe fruit aromas and flavors of blueberry and boysenberry are accented by floral notes and Asian spices. The important tannic structure will soften to perfection in a few years. Food Pairing: Grilled food, red meat and game, and hearty sauces
