Type: Red wine


“In rugby, the big boys up front get called ‘the fatties’ – Ciccio, in Italian.
One of my greatest friends is a former front rower for Italy.
And he’ll tell you it isn’t just size or skill that wins a test – it’s passion.
He’s strong, he’s big… but his heart’s even bigger.
So of course, I named this bold, full-bodied red Ciccio
for the most passionate ‘fatty’ of them all…”
