Feudo Montoni Nero d’Avola Lagnusa 2019 cl 75
Certified organic wine
is the name of the cru from which the grapes come. The name originates from a vineyard whose land has always been called by local farmers, Lagnusa. In Sicilian, “lagnusa” means lazy, producing little. Today, we know well that the less a vineyard produces, the more quality it creates.
