The Raboso wine is one of the ancient kind cultivated in the North-East of Italy. In particular in a special part of land near Piave. This is the reason of its name: Raboso Piave.
We have mark of this old wine from Plinio il Vecchio since Roman age. Jacopo Agostinetti wrote in 1697 that Raboso wine was a "rare wine to taste when the weather is hot".
Raboso wine was shipped also in the New World thanks to its full-bodied quality allowed so long journey already in far-off times.
The most important characteristics of Raboso wine are its astringent taste and cherry smell and its bright thick red color. It is a very important wine that can be aged for more years.
