Rasola

red wine

An ancestral red wine, wine of heart, passion, the very first reason that let everything started. Rasola is not a wine, is an old relative, to whom you owe everything, who comes back to visit you: red and white grapes all together, spontaneous fermentation, no filtering, no temperature control, no added sulphites, transparent bottle, overwhelming wine character.
Whom we made this wine for? For us.
Rasola is “Dino’s wine” and it is unexpectedly good, clear, straight, enjoyable in its simplicity and immediacy.
Maybe because we taste it, above all, with our heart.
