* Cuvee Gamarone 2019: dark-colored full-bodied wine made of dried Malbec and Gamaret grapes following the Amarone technique. Strong aromas of blackberries, black cherries and dried plums with hints of chocolate.
* Pinot Gris Raihalde 2015: a bright gold wine with almost shades of orange, luscious scents of quince and orange marmalade with hints of honey, nice balance in the palate between the warm yellow fruits and an elegant acidity.
