Igino

Cabernet Sauvignon Veronese IGT

45,00

Igino was the real name of the founder behind the Fasoli Gino winery. This wine is a dedication to his strength of character and personality. One of the Fasoli family’s traditions was to gather, regardless of commitments, for Sunday lunch. The men of the household would challenge each other to determine who would take on the ungrateful task of descending into the cold depths of the cellar to retrieve the wine for the festive day. “Igino” is conceived as that very wine, meant to be savored during special moments of unity and conviviality.
