the VINES

Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widespread red grape variety in the world whose powerful tannic structure can give life to extremely complex and long-lived wines.

Cabernet Franc, less late than Cabernet Sauvignon, is perfect to complete the aromatic profile of the latter.

Petit Verdot is a black grape variety originating from the Médoc area in France, due to its rebellious nature it is rarely vinified alone.

With little cultivation in the world, it is a vine that expresses its best in Italy, especially in Lazio and Maremma,
with a late ripening it is capable of producing tannic, concentrated and colored wines.
