From Frank: “Our ‘Grand Vin’ from our Barbabecchi vineyard at 910m. asl. Planted around 1910 and North-Northeast exposed, capturing the first and cool morning sun rays. This pure Nerello Mascalese from ungrafted old vines makes a profound wine, rich as well as elegant, with character, personality and great finesse and is produced only in great vintages where we achieve phenolic ripeness.”
