This wine perfectly represents la Viola, made by harvesting grapes from middle-aged vines. This cru of Sangiovese was the estate’s first production in 1998, and it is the ideal wine for introducing friends to this grape variety. The label depicts “via Colombarone” which rises from the plains up to the hill of Bertinoro, surrounded by vineyards.
