Producer’s notes

Pleasantness and intensity embrace the taster as she or he first smells the scent of this wine, which ranges from a sweet flavour of pansy and iris to more complex balsamic flavours of cedar resin and pepper. The softness felt in the mouth at the moment of drinking is its characteristic, typical of Bonarda, a uniquely Italian vine species which is present only in the Piacentino territory. A heady scent of blackberry adds to the uniqueness of this inimitable wine.
