2003 Azienda Agricola Bianchi – Sizzano – Sizzano DOC 11

The Great Unknown The Piedmont is home to many famous Italian wines – Barolo, Barbaresco, Gavi, Barbera and Ghemme, just to name a few. Sizzano is a rather unknown wine that comes also from the Piedmont. Unlike Barolo, Ghemme, and Barbaresco, Sizzano cannot not be produced with 100% Nebbiolo grapes. Which makes the Sizzano a […]
