Raisened Grapes Wine - Sacramental Wine

“Ottavo Giorno” is born from the provocatative character of the clay soil that favours the expression of the local vines: Bonarda sweet drama is combined with the captivating silkiness of a part of grapes covered by a noble rot. It is a new proposal: Croatina, locally called Bonarda, from an organic agriculture and hand-picked in mid-August.
On 14th March, anno domini 2014, exactly after 1 year and 1 day from the nomination of pope Francesco, pontiff and eight ruler of the state of Città del Vaticano, “Ottavo Giorno” has been certified by the Diocese in Piacenza-Bobbio as “Sacramental Wine”.
