>>> Rosso "Boborosso"
11 VINO-IN-EVIDENZA boborosso

A few words about Boborosso:

Friulians say Boboròsso, pronounced with the third ' o ' elongated, means bogeyman, although there is no literal translation. Telling to someone "you seems a boboròsso"  wants to emphasize the look clumsy ridiculously eccentric portrait of the recipient, but also absolutely harmless in the sense that it does not fear in anyone. Children that have seen  the image of the label on the bottle, created by manipulating and clobbing a photograph of a white beech bud, started to laugh and had fun, then telling them that it was the bogeyman of the polenta continued to laugh. We hope this starts smiles on your face too.
