First produced in 1993, Lupicaia is the flagship wine of the estate. Lupicaia, meaning "area of the wolves" in Latin, is considered one of the best wines in Italy. The two red lines below Lupicaia refer to the red iron soils of its vineyard. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (planted on sandy and chalky soils that give it structure and freshness) and Petit Verdot (planted on clay soils that give it balance and concentration), Lupicaia is a cuvée that symbolises excellence.
