This wine is made from Croatina, Barbera, Uva Rara and other rare indigenous grapes. The name is a hint to a pear tree (“pero” in Italian) in the vineyard, whose leaves turn red (“rosso” in Italian) during the harvesting. The Perorossino is a hearty, rustic wine with an elegance of its own, a perfect expression of its terroir and of our oldest traditions.
We are now converting to organic farming, but we have always been committed to a sustainable approach to vinegrowing, using a minimum of pesticides.
