Rosso di Contrada
Don Pasquale

This wine is linked to family history and obtained from a small, half- hectare vineyard with a northern exposure. The soil consists of white calcareous soil at an elevation of 70 meters above sea level. The exposure to the sun and soil type give the wine a remarkable freshness, acidity and structure. This wine is fermented in stainless steel for twenty days and then matured in the tank until the following spring and refinement in the bottle for an additional six months. Contains less than 10mg/L of naturally occurring SO2.
