"As far back as 1890 my great-grandfather decided that in the green Castilenti our wine estate would be born. The choice of land was not a casual one - Certainly what struck him was not only the extra-ordinary beauty of the mountains, the bloom of the uncontaminated nature, but also how he himself told us as children of the particularly sweet air and the intense scent of the land that made him realise immediately that from vines planted here a great wine would be born. It was from then that nature controlled the existence of my family, and each year from the warm anticipation of spring to the cool days of September we wait with enthusiasm and trepidation for the beginning of the harvest. It is at this moment that all is set aside and our grapes, land and wine become of absolute importance." - Giuseppina Barbone
Ruby color with purple hue. Firm, persistent nose with intense bilberry, mulberry, and plum fruit notes, followed by spicy and rich balsamic tones of vanilla and coffee. Full and fruity structure. A gentle and spontaneous wine, whose soft tannins are sweet and velvety, with great aromatic persistence and a perfect correspondence from nose to mouth. Excellent with rich dishes such as red meats, game, or strong cheeses.
