Villa Capodilista Rosso Colli Euganei DOC

The single vineyard, steeped in tradition, lies at the heart of La Montecchia, which gives its name to the
surrounding area. The vineyard selection sits on a hillside, facing south, and is surrounded by hedge that
stretches along all four sides as a clos. The hill’s trachyte rock and volcanic origins afford the wine its
unique flavour.

The wine was called “Rosso Montecchia” in ’95, ’96 and ’97 vintages..
