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 followed by a long bottle aging.
