La Papessa 2011


La Papessa, one of the oldest farm complexes, in the heart of the estate, is cited in many historical sources dating back to the late 1500s. It is thought to have been named after an influential countrywoman who lived there, with the wine a fitting tribute: powerful, elegant and with exceptional consistency.
