Small pearls from the territory

One of our challenges is to enhance the native varieties of the hills of Novara. In the past, Vespolina, Uva Rara and Croatina were used mainly as a supplement to Nebbiolo in making the great red wines, while nowadays they’re vinified in purity and reveal, singularly, very interesting peculiarities.
