Roberto Da Frassini

Roberto is a professional oenologist with extensive experience working in prestigious wineries. He has always believed in the production of wines with an identity, which is possible by leveraging what makes each blend a unique product: the character of its terroir, the unique characteristics of the grape and vineyard management practices defined by soil and climate.
