Molise Rosso

Molise Rosso

Ruby red with slightly purple at the rim. The nose immediately perceives fresh violet, to which a note of rosemary is added; quickly emerges as protagonist the spicy notes of black pepper and a final hint of citrusy blood orange. It is in the mouth that the wine confirms its uniqueness, with prominent presence of sharptannin that takes us to the epilogue adorned with black forest berries.
