Legend has it that in 1111 in the footsteps of Henry V, German Bishop, Johannes Defuk, travelled to Rome to receive his coronation from Pope Pasquale. As a lover of fine wine, the Bishop instructed his faithful servant Martino to travel ahead of him marking Est (It is) in chalk along the way above the door of inns that stocked good wine or Est, Est , at inns with particularly good wines. The story goes, that the servant Martino was so enchanted with the wine he discovered in Montefiascone that he noted Est! Est!! Est!!! . Very fine bouquet, intense delicate with a dry, pleasant taste. Lively with a zesty lingering finish.
