This wine is meant to be the testimony of the past of Ticino, when the Merlot grape was not cultivated yet and many varieties of hybrids were present instead, the so-called "Americana".

With a typical aroma of strawberries and raspberries (because of which is also called "strawberry grape"), it gives wine a very particular taste, of which there are as many admirers as are its detractors.

This wine, which was drunk at the time of our grandparents, can, for a moment, as an old song, open the closet of our remotest memories.

 

Serving temperature: 16°

 

This wine contains 5 varieties of "Americana" (Magliasina, also called Katobwa, Isabella, Clinton, Baco and Noah), whose amounts vary each year.
