    Having spent his childhood harvesting grapes at local vineyards in Flero, Pirlo now owns and operates his very own family winery in the region.

    To herald the Italian deep-lying midfielder’s appreciation of fine football and fine wine, a leading sports brand has produced a signature boot for him that is designed to look like a bottle of merlot, a report on espnfc reads.

    Just to complete the look, Pirlo’s boots are shipped in a wooden crate and even have insoles made of genuine cork that read ‘aged since 94’ — the year when Pirlo started his career at Brescia — in classic black scroll.
