Io sono il vino che dall'ameno colle del vecchio Mombrione ebbe i natali.
Con l'oro del sol ch'entro mi bolle dei sogni in dolci voli, allargo l'ali.
Mi esaltano i poeti nei lor canti definendomi Nettare dei Santi.


Red wine I.G.T. “Collina del Milanese”.

Achieved an excellent ripeness, the grapes are selected and harvested in small boxes (approximately 5kg).
Transported to the winery, they are placed in a suitable withering room where they remain for about three months. In the month of December they are gently de-stemmed.
The classic red fermentation takes place in steel vats of 70 hl, where, with targeted and repeated rimontagli, the skins are brought into contact with the must-wine for at least a fortnight in order to move all the characteristics (color, flavor, tannin ), present in the dried grapes, in the future wine.
Aging takes place for about six months in oak barrels (barriques) and then in small steel tanks.
