Wine and olive oil

Tenuta Madonnina produces wine that is produced according to traditional methods. The Nerello Mascalese grape is grown on more than four hectares. A magnificent tannin-rich grape that produces a excellent wine with a high alcohol content (14˚). Every year we harvest an average of 15,000 kilos of grapes.
The estate is bordered by olive trees. The olives, which are of excellent quality, are harvested in November/December and then cold pressed into oil. The oil is fresh, floral and delicious in taste. 
Upon arrival there will be a bottle of tasty red Tenuta Madonnina wine and a bottle of olive oil available in the vacation homes ready.
