Wine is a joy and exaltation of bodily sensations, and this is why the Senses Line was born, which includes "monovarietal" wines in purity.
The whole line is followed by verses of illustrious poets, translated by Salvatore Quasimodo and is worthy of some works bySalvatore Incorpora, whose his art was nourished by sculpture, painting, poetry and narrative.
The sacred and the social, the won and the hope, today speak to the heart of man in a universal meaning, through the theme of wine.
