The Oltrepo Pavese is a fun area to approach because it is very varied, even in size, and there are various types of territories and different landscapes to taste. There are practically all the grape varieties, or in any case an enormous number of them, so it is said that there is really an interesting 'variety' here, so there is really something to indulge in. - In addition to this, there has been a constant increase in quality and I have noticed this over the last few years. Each time I ask myself whether the trend is confirmed, whether I will find this improvement again and, above all, I seem to notice that every year more and more small wineries are making a leap in quality. So, on the one hand, you are curious to see if the progress made by some companies is confirmed, but then you discover one or two new companies that have moved up a step or two. So the intriguing question is: who will be this year's new entry?
