DESCRIPTION:

A blend of Barbara and Bonarda grapes in equal proportions, grown on the slopes of Val Trebbiola, in the region of Piacenza. Deep ruby red in colour, intriguing on the nose and complex with red cherry, strawberry and flowery notes of violet and lavender. The palate is long lasting and with an incredibly pleasant balance of acidity combined with gentle tannins.
