Tasting Note:

85 percent of the fruit comes from the Verduno commune with the rest being young vines Gramolere.

The sensual satin-like texture supports the open, plump and juicy fruit – predominantly fresh and aromatic red berry and loganberry flavours. Its beauty, composure and elegance point clearly to the Verduno style.
