Sciacchetrà, the wine of poets

“Illuminated by the sun’s beneficial eye and delightening Bacchus, the vineyards arise above Monte Rosso and the ridge of Corniglia. They are praised everywhere for the sweetest wine...”

(Francesco Petrarca, 1304-1374)

.”..the prideful sciacchetrà, vinfied in the Cinque Terre where the hills are all covered with wine leaves...”

(Gabriele D’Annunzio, 1863-1938)

“...the classical type, totally authentic if you drink it there, surpasses easily the pharmaceutical Porto.”

(Eugenio Montale, 1896-1981)
