La Stoppa is an ancient estate. Previously owned by Mr. Ageno, an Italian solicitor and visionary, who was one of the first Italians to date and plant French varietals on Italian soils. Acquired in 1973 by the Pantaleoni family who restored the vineyards and the cellars.
A gorgeous meaty wine with raunchy wild berry aromas and the ultimate in savoury sour-cherry finish.
