Maria Costanza Rosso Riserva Milazzo

The Maria Costanza Rosso Riserva represents the culmination in the interpretation of the Sicilian grape par excellence, Nero d'Avola. The symbol of the label is the orchid (Paphiopedilum insigne) better known as "Venus Pantofola", favorite flower of Maria Costanza, ancestor of the family, also a wine grower and a great wine lover.
