Novecento Pignolo was produced to commemorate the nine hundredth anniversary of the Papal bull “PIE POSTULATIO VOLUNTATIS,” with which Pope Paschal II placed the Sovereign Military Order of Malta under the protection of the Holy See in 1113. Rocca Bernarda, a winery which has always been a point of reference for Friulan oenology, has among its vineyards the Pignolo grape unique, autochthonous and at one point on the verge of extinction. Each year a special wine will be created from this varietal, which is particularly adapted to aging because of its great structure, elegance and harmony. The
wine will be produced in a limited collector’s edition.
