Like a tanacious woman, we love challenges and for this reason we decided to experiment with Malbec, a grape of great charm but not very popular in Bolgheri. Malaroja was thus born, a limited and exclusive production of this harmonious red wine with a big structure and even bigger personality, the jewel in the crown of the Donne Fittipaldi project.
