Product Description


    Tasting notes

    Straw yellow in colour, the wine offers notes of ripe fruit. It is a wine of great elegance and balance, with a structure which allows it to maintain its character and personality for 18-24 months.


    The current Rhine, unusually tall and slender, was introduced in 2012, along with the new label, which shows a view of the city of Montefiascone and the seal affixed at the end of the manuscript “Fabulam monte fiasconiam” of Johann Jacob Geysius.

    The legend of Est! Est!! Est!!!

    Do you know the legend of the name "Est! Est! Est!" ?

    In 1111 Henry V of Germany was travelling to Rome to receive from Pope Paschal II the crown of Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. With him was travelling a bishop, Johannes Defuk, a wine connoisseur. To satisfy this passion the bishop sent his servant Martin ahead. He had to travel ahead and choose the best wines. If Martin had found good wine, he had to write "Est" (latin for there is), or "No" next to the door of the locanda. If the wine was very good, he had to write "Est Est". When the servant arrived in Montefiascone and tasted the local wine, he was overwhelmed. That's why he decided to repeat three times "Est" with six exclamation points: "Est! Est!! Est!!!".

    The bishop, who arrived in Montefiascone, shared the opinion of his servant and he prolonged his stay in Montefiascone for three days. Indeed, at the end of the imperial mission he returned there, stopping until the day of his death (apparently due to an excess of drinking). He was buried in the church of San Flaviano, where you can still read the inscription on the gray lava stone plaque: "For too much EST ! here lies dead, my lord Johannes Defuk."
