Denominazione di origine controllata.
The name “Illegale” made with 100% Nebbiolo refers to the illegality of using the name "Nebbiolo" which was forbidden in our territory until the 2019 vintage, this is despite the fact that this grape has always been grown in Monferrato. The grapes come from the Nebbiolo growing in the vineyard called the "Rombi" vineyard, exposed to South / South-West, on lands rich in limestone, capable of giving elegance and finesse to the wine, fragrant aromas and longevity. Nebbiolo is the grape variety that Tenuta Santa Caterina has always believed in.
