The Three Red Wines

Three red wines are produced at Quintodecimo, all with Aglianco, the grape variety symbol of the territory. The essence of Quintodecimo is that of bringing wine back to the vineyard that created them in order to fully express the concept of terroir. This effectively explains how the grapes are the result of the interaction between the environment surrounding each vine, the plant itself and the work of man. The different soils of the estate, consisting of expandable clays in light and dark volcanic soil, produce sophisticated fine wines characterized by extraordinary elegance.
