Stèfen is the ancient surname of the De Stefani family, as written in old documents dated 1624 found in Refrontolo, a UNESCO Wold Heritage site. The grapes of this wine are produced in the “Stèfen 1624” vineyard and are vinificated recalling the ancient tradition of drying the grapes and refining the wine in small oak casks. The result is a dry wine which improves with a long ageing. Ideal with game, meat on the spit, seasoned cheeses or alone as a meditation wine.
