Bonarda vivace (semi-sparkling)
Bonarda dell’Oltrepò Pavese DOC

This wine is made from Croatina, the indigenous grape par excellence of the Oltrepò Pavese wine region. The semi-sparkling Bonarda is the most popular wine of our region, a true symbol of our gastronomic tradition and culture. We are now converting to organic farming, but we have always been committed to a sustainable approach to vinegrowing, using a minimum of pesticides and antiparasitic treatments.
