THIS WINE’S STORY

Marco named this wine “Oracle” because he created it through inspiration. This wine is what he had in mind when he planted his vineyard. He decided that he wanted to make a still wine, which is not typical in this area where all of the officially recognized wines are sparkling. He envisioned a slightly aromatic, structural, still white wine that represented his area, Monterosso Val d’Arda.
