Regular price $29.00 Sale

The grapes for "Divicaroli" are sourced from 30-year-old pelaverga vines. Pelaverga is characteristic of the area around Saluzzo. Here it was long a staple in blends, but its importance shrank over time, until it nearly vanished in the 1970s. Today, careful site selection and pruning are bringing about a small and welcome renaissance for the grape. Its peppery, high-toned freshness, and delicate floral and herbaceous notes are quintessentially Alpine.

A rare red wine grape producing a red wine for white wine drinkers.
