Ampeleia was born in 2002 from the collaboration and friendship between Elisabetta Foradori, Thomas Widmann and Giovanni Podini. They saw in Ampeleia a place where they could not only develop an agricultural project but also fulfil a common vision relating to shared values and experiences.

In the glass it has a deep ruby red colour. The nose has dark berry aromas as well as floral notes and a green tea undertone. Medium to full body, the palate is perfectly balanced with firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish.
