In the media

Lieti Conversari. Conversation piece. Thanks to that incrocio. Sounds exotic but means nothing other than crossing. And not of two roads, but in this case of two grapes. Result of some experiments in the thirties of the last century. Place of operation: the oldest wine training in the country, in Conegliano. There Professor Luigi Manzoni thought that crossing prosecco and nota bene cabernet sauvignon could lead to interesting white. And still damn it: it worked. Dried yellow apples and apricot, mandarin, bitter orange peel, spice, sun and citrus. And the conversation does not bite for a moment in obligatory chatter. At most a silence now and then. But that is significant. Then there is enjoyed.
