Overview

El Rocallis is a cuvée made from 100% Incrocio Manzoni, a cross between Riesling and Pinot Blanc originating from Friuli and planted by Carlos in 1988. It is aged in 100% new French oak for 4-5 months followed by at least 2 years of aging in the bottle. It also displays a penetrating minerality but is weightier and creamier than the Calma.
