Tasting Note: This ruby red wine shows a deep aroma, with spices and red fruit. Gentle and persistent on the palate, the flavor reminds dried fruit and red/black fruit.
Producer: The name itself Antonio Vallana e Figlio evokes the family’s long and honourable history, based in the heart of the region, in Maggiora and their website proudly proclaims 5 generations in wine. The fifth and current generation is represented by Marina and Francis Fogarty, sister and brother, who have fully taken charge of the winemaking and running of the family estate over the last 10 years. Marina describes things as “in one way nothing has changed, and we are very faithful to our legacy of traditional wines from the region” for which they have many long-standing customers. However, they are both keen to see a progression and combine modernity with tradition.
