  • My thoughts

Enrica Spadafora, it's not only a classic method Nature, above all she's my daughter and this is what she writes in the back label:

Thank you Dado for dedicating these bubbles to me.

They remind me of the sea and as I stare at the glass they give me peace.

We always toast for important, unique and special things, as like the both of us!!

Your daughter Enrica

Nothing else than Nature could be!
