Cavalo Maluco (Crazy Horse) was a great Sioux chief who resisted the occupation and destruction of his people's land and culture by the American Pioneers. Even after his capture, he remained true to his beliefs and code of honor. A powerful and intense character, indomitable and sometimes disrespectful, but also sensitive and courteous, like the wine that now bears his name. A wine that is a tribute to all the "Crazy Horses" of this world who, driven and fearless, think for themselves and tread their own path.
To underscore its distinctiveness, annually Cavalo Maluco will be dedicated to a personality who identifies with the spirit of the wine (with their initials on the label).
