Raboso: Marco Polo's wine
Raboso is the most ancient autochthonous red variety in eastern Veneto, used by Marco Polo during long journays because of his resistance. Raboso has been the first wine to be exported to the East by the Venice Republic. The name Raboso comes from the word Rabbioso and means furious, impassionate. Raboso Frizzante Terre di Rai is produced with Raboso grapes. It is fresh, sapid and a little bit acid with notes of marasca cherry and currants. The perlage is fine and persistent. The grapes are harvested in the late autumn.
