The small Genio vineyard lies on the slope of a hill so steep, no machines can handle the terrain. The vines are handled completely by hand, resulting in high-quality wines with a special touch. Taste for yourself a "handmade wine" when you try Credere, a 100% Refosco wine that is spicy when young but ages into a rich, intense and elegant wine.
