Fun facts: A rare recurring bottling for Gianfranco, Alvas is his only white wine.
From the seven white grapes he grows, all from different vineyards that are co-planted in red and white.
"The wine is not important to me; the idea is. Alvas has seven grapes, I'm searching for when they can all go in together in harmony. They need to all be adding something to the table, like ingredients to a final dish. I have to sense it."
All the Panevino wines are fermented in open top wooden vats, then racked to old barrels where they age for 12 months.
