Palladio was the name of an architect from Venice who created many innovative designs during the Renaissance. This modern twist on a classic is a blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo and Colorino, which is vinified in stainless steel tanks and cement vats. The wine is then aged in stainless steel tanks and French oak casks for 12 months. This creates a fresh, easy-to-drink wine that can easily please friends and guests.
