Vintage 2018

Mosto Parzialmente Fermentato La Verotta

Tasting Notes

Alcohol content 5,5% vol.

This wine is produced from a partially fermented must, based on Brachetto grapes.

It is a light and delicate product, excellent with cheeses, in particular Gorgonzola.

The name comes from the union of Veronica and Carlotta, my two daughters, to whom I have chosen to dedicate this wine.

Ideal serving temperature: 6°C
