The Via Francigena, which in medieval time led pilgrims from Canterbury to Rome, was the watershed between the eastern vineyards, such as Malvasia and Sauvignon, and the western red ones, Barbera and Bonarda. On flatlands instead there were Merlot, Chardonnay and the typical Lambrusco and with them the new Monte delle Vigne, an underground variety, gravitationally crushed, and perfectly integrated in the surrounding area.

Nabucco, the title of one of the most important works by the greatest Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi, is the name given to a wine produced in the same province in which Verdi was born. It is a name that mirrors the character of this wine, which has a well-structured bouquet that exalts the aromas of red fruits, mixed berries and liquorice. Its great concentration when tasted is not at all banal, with soft, silky tannins that give an embracing flavour. It can almost be taken for granted that this wine should be served with Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
