Tasting notes


Deliciously aromatic, with peach blossom, lemon curd and exotic jasmine notes. On the palate you get ripe greengage and lychee flavours balanced by refreshingly zesty citrus notes. It finishes clean with lingering fruit flavours.

About the producer

The Famoso grape, previously known as Uva Rambela, was popular in central Italy back in the 16th century. But it fell out of favour during the last century and was all but forgotten, until two rows of vines were discovered in 2000. The owner renamed the grape 'Famoso' and it is now produced in small parcels by a dedicated group of vintners in the Caviro co-operative. They're convinced that the grape's unique aromatic characteristics are important to the Emilia-Romagna region and cannot be lost. With wines like this, we support them fully.

Food & Wine

Enjoy as an aperitif, or with grilled sea bass, herby garlic prawns or ravioli with spinach and ricotta.
