Product Details

Croatina is a difficult grape because the tannins ripen very late. So Christoph decided not to harvest until they are fully ripe. The grapes from these old vines are of course lower in acidity and higher in sugar, making this soft, powerful tasting wine somewhat reminiscent of Amarone.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni): “In the 2017 Colline Novaresi Piane features the rare Croatina with dollops of Nebbiolo, Vespolina and other indignenous grapes. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, licorice and spice come together in an exotically ripe and inky wine loaded with class and personality. Rich, deep and potent, the 2017 is dazzling. In a word: superb.” 91/100
