Item Number: 30729
"Sweet but not at all cloying; well-balanced and with an extremely refined fruitiness. Excellent at the end of a meal with desserts or fruit (especially fruit salad). Also delicious with gelato, or just on its own as an accompaniment to conversation among friends."-Tasting Notes
"The estate lies entirely within the Monferrato area in the Province of Asti, one of Piedmont’s finest wine zones. 80% of its vineyards are in the district of Portacomaro, whilst 20% are at Costigliole d’Asti. The Monferrato is quite unlike any other viticultural region: here the vineyards alternate with woodland and fields, and there is great variation in the zone’s hillsides, even in the colour of their soils.
It takes its name from the medieval stronghold that dominates it, and which once belonged to the noble Bunéis family. Its northern part is today still referred to, in dialect, as the Val del Temp (which means Valley of the Temple) because the Templars had properties there, as testified by the Codex Astensis, the only authenticated record of events in Asti during the Middle Ages. The last surviving member of the Bunéis family left the estate in his will to the Bishop of Acqui who often summered there in the 18th century."-Winery Notes
Love it - Very sweet and good
