Piorro 2012 Red
The square being a symbol of equilibrium, it was the geometric form chosen to characterize this wine.
The oenology team of the 1912 Winemakers was asked to introduce us to a fruity wine with good balance in the mouth, body and acidity, so to be able to have a wine for the day to day, to accompany a meal, or just for an early night. An easy, pleasant wine.
