The name was chosen to honor the family owning for more than hundred years the Giurfo estate. Pure and refined in stainless steel, “Belsito” enhances the peculiarities of the frappato vines, releasing all the typical flavors of the red berry fruits, which are even more emphasized by the favorable exposure of the estate vines.
