Genius Loci

A protective deity of our lands and those who dwell or pass through them. Our Genius Loci is a DOP Fiano, with a pale straw yellow color with greenish reflections and a floral scent of acacia, linden, and thyme. For us, it’s like a swan searching for itself, who enjoys telling its story with its fresh taste and persistent aroma.
