Vino dei Fratelli / Sicilia
The Fratelli wine is produced by several different families throughout Italy. Each specializes in the indigenous varieties grown in their regions and they produce some of the best wines in that area. The label shows an ancient Roman coin struck in 46 BC depicting 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.
