La Roggia is obtained after a long drying process using the best grapes from the La Roggia vineyard, on the slopes of Monte Sausto in San Pietro in Cariano. It is a refined red “passito” (dried grape sweet wine), extraordinarily rich and all-encompassing. It is a tempting, meditative wine which complements classic, traditional desserts.
