“Rosso Passione” is the Ferrari red and represents high Italian produce. But red is also the colour of  passion which is the base to creating this entire pack for you. Red is blood and life. Red is the last colour of the Italian flag, representing the passion in our souls. “Rosso come la passione dei nostri cuori!” “Red as the passion inside our hearts!”.

When we smell and taste Italian red wines we feel the liquid of Dionisio or Bacchus been poured into our bloodstream. If you are a passionate Italian wine lover, this is definitely the perfect box for you!
