Tre Confini Bianco

prodotti details


As the name Tre Confini–‘three borders’–suggests, this is a wine which aims to break down the local political boundaries that divide our region, those of Novara, Vercelli and Biella. Tre Confini is in fact made from three locally harvested grape varieties, Autochthonous single grape variety as specified for our DOC wines, Cortese and Sauvignon Blanc.

Our Autochthonous single grape variety as specified for our DOC wines gives the structure, the Cortese the body and the Sauvignon Blanc the fragrant notes. This experimental wine is aimed to meet a need for a fragrant aperitif wine that cannot be achieved alone with Autochthonous single grape variety as specified for our DOC wines, a perfect food wine known for its structure and intensity.
