Farina's newest wine celebrates the appellation of IGT Trevenezie and the blending of three grape varietals that are representative of Verona. The name Nodo d'Amore - Knot of Love in English - is a tribute to the three knots in the Farina coat of arms.
Vinification: The Merlot and Teroldego grapes are dried for about 20 days and then destemmed and crushed together. The Corvina grapes are crushed separately directly after harvest. The three varieties are combined prior to fermentation.
