Cardunaj, Red Wine

Cardunay is the name of the soil composed of a vineyard and the oldest forest in the property of Malabaila. Roman authors mention a sweet and aromatic wine, ‘vinum acquense “, perhaps the wine with aphrodisiac virtue, used by Julius Caesar and then by Marcantonio to conquer Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt.
