This wine comes from Lombardia where it is produced in Agienda Agricola Matilde. The grapes are originally from Croatina, a red variety from central northern Italy, which produce an intensely ruby red color. The wine is 10.5 to 11 percent alcohol content with a slightly tannic taste, dry, fresh with notes of berries and sometimes sparkling. The alcohol content ranges from a minimum of 85 percent for Croatina with a maximum of 15 percent Barbera, Uva Rara and/or Vespolina. The Oltrepo Pavese DOC became a separate DOC in 2010. The vineyard area is comprised of 6,662 acres.
