Le Bucce Riserva Rosso – Siemàn

After a year in oak barriques where wild/ native yeasts do their job, and maturation in the wood of three months with local Pinot Noir grapes, Le Bucce Riserva Rosso beer is ready to drink. And love. Drink with me this IGA by Siemàn, Italian winery and brewery.

Siemàn is a word that in the local dialect (Venetian: sìe màn) means six hands: two hands for each brother in this family-run business in the Berici Hill… Not far from Venice if you have never been to Italy 🙂
