GRETA I.G.T.

This wine was first produced in 2008 and was dedicated to Giovanna Tantini’s daughter Greta. It is pure Corvina which is cultivated and vinified, thus fulfilling the company’s challenge to create a unique product on it’s property. As unique as Greta herself. The grapes are harvested in November; the grapes are left on the vine to wither. Yield: 30 ql per hectare.
