Tasting Notes

Cinque Campi, which means five fields, is a reference to the five original vineyards this project started with. Vanni Nizzoli’s family has been making wine in this location for over 200 years now. In the beginning they made the wine just for themselves, and then in 1980 they began to produce wine in glass demijohn for local people to purchase. Vanni adds no sulfur to any of the wines, and disgorges every bottle. Dry on the palate and an ideal candidate for cured meats and antipasti.
