Antiche Terre Solo Passione Rosso

In Vino Veritas

Wine is not simply considered a drink in Italy, but it is part of local habits and culture. The wine production comes from the past, in fact if we talk about mithology, you can remember about Bacchus.

In Medieval times Benedictine monks practised grape farming in their monasteries and experimenting with new techniques.

Italy today produces great quantities of wine; fine and often excellent whites and reds spring like mushrooms up and down the country and Antiche Terre is one of them.

The Sancassani family has lived with their 25-hectare vineyard on the hills of Valpolicella Valpanetena for over 100 years. Since 2000, the winemaker and award-winning winemaker Luca Degani is responsible for winemaking. His passion has always been to create a wine that combines the mystery of Amarone with fresh fruit and moderate alcohol content, and he succeed with this Rosso Solo Passione. Salute!
