Stefano Bellotti began as an eighteen year old in 1977, reclaiming the family farm where there was less than 1 hectare of vineyard in existing use. In addition to grapes, the estate has a diversified production of fruits, vegetables and cereals, and keeps a variety of farm animals.
Bronze/orange colour. Fine expressive nose of herbs, tea, melon and peaches. The palate is rich but dry with grainy structure and lovely pear and apricot fruit. Lovely balance and grip.
