    "La Fogarina" is made from 100% La Fogarina, an ancient grapevine that is typical of the area but that almost disappeared 60 years ago. In 2002, Alberici rediscovered and vinified it from near extinction. In the glass it has an intense ruby ​​red colour with violet reflections. A pleasantly pronounced nose is met with a completely captivating palate that is fresh and vibrant, showing tart currant and slightly vegetal qualities in juxtaposition to purple berry ripeness. Bright, light, and dry with a fun yet balanced acidity. Don't miss the opportunity to try this very rare grape!
