STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Peperino is represented by a rabbit knight holding a spear and shield and riding a hybrid creature, a snail with a human head.
Drolleries, babewyns, antics with mysterious meanings or no meanings at all, hybrid creatures, monstrous medieval creations, or just the product of the amanuenses’ irony: A tribute to the symbols and the art of the illuminated manuscripts of the Gothic period.
