The Italian genius for transforming the unique qualities of land into pure art, Sistina is inspired by the “cosmatesque” mosaics which appeared for the first time in 1200 A.D., in which small pieces of precious polychrome geometric-shaped marbles are assembled. Of particular workmanship, these are found mostly on church floors across Italy, including Abruzzo. This classic beauty is revealed in Sistina’s wines. Crafted with the utmost care, elegant in taste, and with a balanced sensorial level akin to the same balance found in the timeless architectural beauties found in Italian artistic creations.
