LISTEN, LIVE
Wine tells a story of a land: as stolen sap of ripe berries and made must, it wrests its color from the skins, copies its structure from gnarled and curled shoots, kidnaps the light poured on the lobes of leaves, sublimates the waters and air in its scents. The Gambarogno is our land, our landscapes, places and people summed up in the words and grammar of a wine. Gambarogno is that wine.
