Vino dei Fratelli

Italy

Our label shows an ancient Roman coin struck in 46 BC depicting two of the most famous FRATELLI (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 (Roman name Jupiter) placed both their immortal souls together in the sky as symbols of brotherly love.  Today we refer to them as the constellation Gemini.
