La Cantina Pizzolato Raboso DOC Piave

£12.99
Raboso is a wine of ancient origins, whose name many historians claim derives from the homonymous tributary of the Piave river. This vine has been present in Italy since before the advent of Rome, Pliny the Elder spoke of it in his Naturalis Historia and described it as a wine more "pitch black". Today it refers to his being "Rabbioso", given by his marked acidity. The Raboso Piave is a native vine whose cultivation extends along the banks of the Piave river, It was for a long time considered a "rustic" and resistant vine so as to have managed to easily overcome the spread of grape phylloxera at the end of the nineteenth century; the maturation is late and its harvest, in our organic vineyards, takes place in the period between late October and November: the result is an excellent aging wine.
