More about Rocco:
He is a winemaker at Azienda Agricola Toscani. He was born in 1980, and as a child, he wanted to be a horse breeder because he has always loved animals. However, the important presence of such a well-known father inevitably led him to pick up a camera and open a personal studio in Milan. He went to school to become an artist but he was called to come back as a winemaker. Now, he makes excellent wines in Casale Marittimo, which he also considers to be an art.
