Il Gelso di Lapo
Euganei Hills Docg
A dessert wine exclusively made from Yellow Moscato grapes. Its name, Il Gelso di Lapo (Lapo’s mulberry), tells about a place of the heart in our estate: a large mulberry tree among the vineyards, where our dog, Lapo, used to laze. Meditation wine. It also goes down pleasantly well with blue cheeses and pastrybased desserts.
