Producer: Glicine, Marcorino, Curra', are reminiscent of this small winery that took roots in 1980, named "del Glicine" as a tribute to a century-old wisteria located in the garden. They began producing for enjoyment in small quantities with both successes and disappointment. Slowly the past time grew into business facilitated by the existing unique 17th century cellar, a great example of Piedmontese Baroque kept in perfect condition. The silence, the darkness, the moistness, and the coolness are ideal for storage and ageing wines.
