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.

  • Type: Red Wine
  • Grape: 50% Croatina, 30% Barbera e 10% Uva rara, 10% Vespolina
  • Alcohol: 16%
  • Region: Lombardy
  • Bottle size: 500 ml
  • Serving temperature: 15-16° C
  • 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.

Origin

Lombardy

The landscape comes in infinite variations within its large territory: the Lombardy region ranges from the Alps to the countryside, from art cities to tiny hamlets rich in history. Italy’s big lake district (there are more than that fifteen lakes). Lombardy is also the perfect destination for those looking for a dynamic, exciting holiday without getting bored. The cuisine of Lombardy is rich and varied, with solid and rustic flavours that well combine with frigid temperatures and that tell of a close bond with nature and its territory. Recipes passed down from generation to generation are relive through modern reinterpretations yet respectful of traditions.

Producer
Poggio Rebasti

The history of the Rebasti family, owners of Poggio Rebasti winery goes back to the end of 1800 when Pietro Rebasti started cultivating vines and producing wine on a small hill in the municipality of Montescano, part of the kingdom of Italy. This passion for viticulture was handed down from father to son until the 1970’s when Ermanno Rebasti, the current owner of the farm, personally entered the vineyard and cellar with the clear will to continue with the family’s philosophy and values. Poggio Rebasti seeks excellence in wine production, day after day, through the care of details in the vineyard, in the cellar and in the relationship with the environment.
