Product Description

Bolgheri, famous for its prestigious wines and its exceptional territory, has become the stage of a new, extraordinary Ban Tuscany adventure.
ASKA, in Etruscan means container. e Etruscans used it as a vessel to store wine and olive oil and to collect perfumes and nectars. However, not only: as the legend goes, this was a treasure chest to protect hopes, dreams, happiness and joy, entrusted to Estruscan gods Cuatha and Ser- nia (Sun and Moon), represented by the two bright spheres which mark day and night on the label.
e grapes of ASKA are vini ed with a brief maceration in temperature- controlled stainless steel tanks for approximately 12-14 days. Once the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are completed, the wine is aged for 10 months in oak barrels, completing its evolution with appropriate bottle aging.
Superb accompaniment to red meats, game, and aged cheeses.
