Segreto Verde – Trebbiano Verde Anfora

The terracotta amphora is the oldest winery container in history, and is a work philosophy more than a simple container. Its shape, which recalls the maternal uterus and the natural material of which it is made (clay), amplify the “terroir” concept. In the amphora the grapes ferment and turn into wine, renewing a promise, a “marriage” , that has been repeating itself for over 5,000 years.
