Curiosities

Bonarda Piemonte is the less famous wine of our zone, yet very appreciated. It is an autochthonous variety.

This vine variety requires very sunny slopes and is characterized by medium-big loosely packed bunches of pyramidal shape.

The berries are small and of blue-black colour with pruinose skin.
