The Fratelli wine is produced by several different families throughout Italy, each of whom specialize in the indigenous varieties grown in their regions. The label shows an ancient Roman coin from 46 BC that depicts two of the most famous brothers in the Roman religion. Castor and Pollux fell in love with beautiful sisters who were already betrothed to suitors. The brothers challenged and slew their rivals, but Castor was mortally wounded. In the end, Zeus placed both their immortal souls together in the Sky as symbols of brotherly love. Today, they are known as the “Gemini Twins” Constellation.
