The wine is named for a phrase in Machiavelli's Discourses on Livy. The word "severità" means not just severity but discipline. The first year that we made the wine, it tasted like nothing that we had ever made before- higher acid, with very intense and even severe structure. In a certain sense, the most serious thing we had done to-date.
