Salterio

Rosso di Montepulciano
Denominazione di Origine Controllata

The term “Salterio” refers to a stringed instrument dating back to at least 300 B.C.. It is trapezoid-shaped, with two groups of central strings. The space between them was used to hold the Book of Psalms, which was sung using the instrument as accompaniment.

Salterio is our Rosso di Montepulciano, a versatile and intriguing wine, the ideal accompaniment for any dish.
