For 63 vintages this wine has represented the estate of the same name. It expresses to the fullest the potential aromas of the terroir. Always a classic, unmistakable with its Rhine bottle. A blend born from three different native grape varieties, grown in the high hills: Inzolia, Grecanico, and Catarratto, and with a small addition of Chardonnay.
