2022

The name Varvàra is in honor of Baroness Varvàra Wrangler, wife of Count Ugolino della Gherardesca and great-grandmother of Count Federico Zileri Dal Verme, the current owner.
This wine was born from the desire to develop a more immediate product while continuing to give importance to the fruit.
