In the Etruscan pantheon, Voltumna and Veltha represent the divine couple, the god and goddess. To them Panizzi dedicates the production of the Chianti Colli Senesi in its two declinations: the Riserva and the Vintage. A dyad of Panizzi wines that follows the changing of the seasons and the ripening of the grapes: on the one hand a young, nimble, "feminine" wine, on the other the Riserva, a wine with a more muscular character, concentrated and aged in barriques.
While the Vertunno Riserva is made for the first time in 1989, the younger Vintage version is born exactly 30 vintages after, with the vintage 2018.
