Mille e Una Botte – Igt Venezia Giulia

Like the legend of Scheherazade, which inspired its name (the name means “Thousand and One Barrels”), Castello di Buttrio’s Mille e Una Botte is spellbinding. It is a wine that conjures up dreams and memories old friends. Shimmering gold and amber accompany pervasive notes of honey and vanilla as it takes you to another world and cossets your taste buds with the mouthfilling sweetness and tannic verve typical of the verduzzo grape. A glassful of magic.
