Maccone Rosso 17

The production of this wine requires three clones of grapes and three generations of history and experience. In very limited quantities and only bottled in certain vintages, it is obtained from vinification of local vine clones with very limited yield, which we cultivate in an old, more than 70 year old vineyard with Alberello cultivation. The cultivation of these vineyards is still done manually, according to the old traditions.
