Made from Moscato di Scanzo grapes dried for about forty days, gently crushed and slowly fermented then aged two years in barriques and steel. An intense ruby red in colour, with garnet highlights emerging over time, it offers the nose hints of red fruit, spices and vanilla; pleasantly sweet on the palate, with good structure, persistence and softness. Ideal with dry pastries, dark chocolate, or aged or blue cheese, it is also excellent for sipping alone.

Label: the wine is named after Argo, the legendary giant with a hundred eyes which Juno put onto the peacock’s tail. Illustrator Sarolta Szulyovsky represents the peacock’s elegance on the label: a marvellous creature depicted with a grape leaf in its mouth and its tail blending with the vines, leaves and tendrils.
