This wine comes from their own vineyards in Rai di San Polo di Piave which are planted in sand and clay soils. 90% of the grapes are dried to raisin on the vine; 10% of the grapes are dried in dry room. Aged 24 months in French oak.
The name Raboso is thought to be derived from the Italian word rabbioso, which means angry – this could be a reference to how people responded to the aggressive tannins and acid structure of wines made from this variety. However, it’s more plausible the grape takes its name from the Raboso river which flows through Veneto’s eastern Treviso province.
