The name and neckerchief print around the bottle represent the 'Fazzoletto Rosso' worn by Italian resistance fighters during World War 2, symbolising freedom and rebellion. Packaged with three distinct labels featuring: Michaelangelo's Statue of David, the Statue of Abundance (Trevi Fountain) and the Statue of Augustus of Prima Porta - all wearing the red neckerchief. *Each 6-bottle case contains a random selection of all 3 labels*

This wine is a rediscovery of the old tradition of using partially-dried grapes to add richness and concentration. The Barbera grapes were grown on southwest-facing slopes in the Monferrato hills, at 250-400m altitude. Soils here are clay and limestone. Following the traditional passito technique - a portion of ripe Barbera grapes (around 20%), left on the vine for nearly a month after the main harvest to sun dry, were blended with fresh Barbera grapes before fermentation. This sweetens, enriches and softens the resulting acidity.

Tasting notes

A fleshy and juicy red with aromas of sweet ripe plums and cherries. The palate shows ripe fruit-forward characters of cherry and wild plum and the ripe rounded finish is balanced by fresh bramble acidity.

Food match

A good match for roast poultry or game, or rich stews and pasta dishes.

Vintage: 2017
