“Sovernaja” is made from the Verdacchio grape, a grape that is completely extinct; except in Federico’s vineyards! As of 2019, Federico and oenologist Andrea made their first and worldwide only 100% Verdacchio wine. Tasting such an exclusive wine is a great experience for any wine lover.”

Aged for 1 year in concrete tanks and 1 year in bottle. The entire process from the field to winemaking is carried out without the use of energy, i.e. entirely by hand.
Golden reflections on a straw background.
On the nose, peppermint and cedar peel stand out with hints of officinal herbs such as marjoram and oregano.
The wine comes subtle on the palate and then expands into a decisive and lively sip in which the pronounced acidity is enveloped by a savory and material volume.
The Sovernaja goes well with oysters, seafood & various pastas.
