Raboso Piave D.O.C.
Rabosi – Historical
The vine of the Raboso has existed in the Piave area for thousands of years. Some people define it as ‘angry’ perhaps because of its black color, its unusual strength, its harshness; Raboso tastes of leam earth, of the stony foreshores of the Grave del Piave, of wild cherries in dense scrub.
