Breganze Torcolato DOC Riserva
Still sweet white
Organically Certified Wine
The result of a selection of Vespaiola grapes dried inside the Granary of Villa Angarano’s Palladian Barchessa during a whole winter. A wine unique for its perfect balance between sweetness and surprising freshness. Precious like San Bortolo, a small, old church north of the estate, connected to Angarano’s bank by the ford of the same name that crosses the river Brenta.
