Krysos is a flavoured wine obtained from Buttafuoco dell'Oltrepò Pavese DOC vineyard. Herbs and China Calisaya or Chinaroot bark are infused separately into alcohol and the extracts so obtained are added to the base wine Buttafuoco with sugar. The recipe of the herbal blend is a secret jealously guarded by the Rebasti family. To reach the right balance between the ingredients, wine is placed into small oak barrels for about 6 months.

- Matching: Meditation wine, is one of the few wines that well goes with dark chocolate, excellent on cream ice-cream. Thanks to the sweet-bitter taste Krisos is perfect as a digestive if drunk at low temperatures. Otherwise, as it was used at the beginning of the last century, as a “medicine”. Indeed to the chinato wine, served warm, was assigned by its pharmacists creators the same flu and corroborating therapeutic indications of vin brulé.
