Notti di Luna Piena Malanotte del Piave DOCG

An ancient legend tells that the Devil comes down to Rai on “full moon nights” (that is “notti di luna piena” in Italian), placing one foot on the ancient tower and the other on the bell tower of the nearby church. This story has inspired the name of the company’s signature wine, the Piave and the outspoken character of its inhabitants: the Raboso. This unique, ancient vine is able to create peculiar, structured wines with a great personality: impetuous and indomitable in their youth, they tend to soften and mature over the years, to express their character with higher levels of elegance and longevity.

To produce Notti di Luna Piena, the grapes are left to dry in a fruit cellar for about 90 days, after which wine is made. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine is left to age in barrels and barriques for about 36 months before being bottled. Its rashness is tamed, its vehemence restrained by time.

Its rashness is tamed, its vehemence restrained by time It is a structured, rich and generous wine that doesn’t lose its elegance, claiming its position as a signature local wine. It has notes of cherries, sour cherry, blackberry, black cherry, plum, with hints of the intense aroma of cinnamon, vanilla, leather, tobacco, violet and pepper.
