CURIOSITY: As the story goes Judas, once passed away, repented of betraying Jesus. Being forgiven, he was revived in Broni, in Oltrepò Pavese. The citizens, who recognized him, first wanted to kill him but Judas cured the grapevines from their diseases and the local people called the wine after his name, hence the name Sangue di Giuda (Juda’s Blood).Download Data Sheet
