Description
Our "Konti-ki" is an IGT Veneto organic and vegan certified red wine with no added sulphites from red grapes of vines resistant to fungal diseases. PIWI are vines resistant to fungal diseases. They are the result of constant research by man and of a selection, in progress for several decades, of crosses between varieties of vitis vinifera (for wine) and varieties of American vines (resistant to fungal diseases), admitted in all respects for the production of quality wines. The advantage is the minimum number of treatments (2/4 per year) carried out and the consequent environmental impact for their cultivation. Wine with intense, harmonious, spicy aromas with typical notes of red fruit. Its name was inspired by the "Kon-Tiki", the raft used by the Norwegian explorer and writer Thor Heyerdahl on his expedition in 1947 across the Pacific Ocean from South America to the islands of Polynesia. The boat was named after an ancient Inca name of the rain god (Kon). Travel with us in this world still to be explored, welcome to the new era of Piwi wines!
