DONNA FRANCESCA

Who is Donna Francesca for me?

“She was sitting on a velvet chair, in silence. She was no longer young, but her elegant bearing and confident gaze gave her a timeless beauty. Then, suddenly she raised her hand to play with the string of pearls around her neck and began to speak in a soft voice.”

Donna Francesca is a white wine to my taste. It starts with the selection of the most suitable grapes exposed to and matured by the sun. It ferments very slowly and once this is completed, fining in wood for at least a year is started.
Once it has been bottled, it remains in the cellar for at least another year, and only then in the third year after the harvest is it introduced to its public.
It is a timeless wine in no hurry to be drunk. It gives great satisfaction from the very start and does not betray this even after years in the bottle.
