After years of continual experimentation, we identified the best quality potential of our grapes in the “Asinone” vineyard. The Nobile “Asinone” represents the highest expression of our production and the most accomplished synthesis between tradition, territory, and enological innovation. Obtained from Sangiovese grapes, it expresses a recognizable style and a defined character, but also has wide-ranging appeal to international palates.
