Originally widespread, this grape variety is now a sought-after rarity. The power of ideal soils, the climate around the lake and the typical red- dish grape skins characterize the wine. In our region this variety is allowed to ferment on the mash for up to 7 days. This gives the wine depth, spice and a brilliant copper-ochre tinge.
