A selection of Petit Verdot planted by Maurizio in 1998, finally mature and ready for single variety vinification. Created from his personal desire in order to dominate this impetuous and stubborn vine variety.
This wine bears the name of the producer who wanted to create it so intensely even if he knew that it would have been a long and difficult challenge. Vintage 2016 finally reaches an elegant balance between the extraordinary polyphenolic richness and tannin structure that are typical of this variety.
