With the Cépage, Conte Vistarino wanted to try its hand at the unusual assembly of the two most famous grape varieties in the world. Since the name (Cépage=grape variety), it is emphasized that this cuvée abandons the tradition of Vistarino while maintaining its well-known stylistic figure.
The aging lasts for at least 30 months in bottle where the Cépage carries out its slow fermentation with uninterrupted contact between wine and yeasts.
