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.

Amber-coloured with golden reflections. The nose is aromatic, clean and pleasing with extremely elegant notes of ripe apricot, candied fruit, caramel, dried fig, honey, almond and vanilla. The palate is sweet, soft and fresh, with a long finish of apricot and caramel.

Ideal wine for desserts and blue cheese.
