Jiasik Rosso - Borgo San Daniele - ITALY
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon 100%.
Yearly production: 13000 bottles.
Colour: Ruby red.

Behind the label: In the ancient local language, Jiasik means Giassico, a small village located on the outskirts of Cormons, where the air still smells of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. A river crosses this small village, the Judrio, which has always divided Italy and Austria in ancient times. Giassico was the first land of division, and now it is a land of a union.
Producer: Borgo San Daniele is a small biodynamic winery from 1990, in Italy's northeast corner where the DOCs of the Collio and Friuli Isonzo meet.
