Semi-sparkling red wine
Vineyards located in: Solinga Valley, Canneto Pavese.
Soil: the vineyards are located on a south-oriented very steep sloping hillside.
Grape: Croatina (100%).

Pairing suggestions: extremely food-friendly wine. It pairs very well with salami, pasta, red meats and medium ripened cheese.

Available formats: 0,75 l bottle.
Considerate la vostra semenza:
fatti non foste a viver come bruti,
ma per seguire virtute e conoscenza.
Li miei compagni fec’io sì aguti,
con questa orazion picciola,
che a pena poscia li avrei ritenuti;
e volta nostra poppa nel mattino,
de’ remi facemmo ali al folle volo,
dal lato mancino.
Inferno, Canto XXVI, 118-126
