MONTEFALCO DOC ROSSO

Intense ruby color wine. This wine is the result of a perfect blend of three grapes: Sangiovese, Merlot and autochthonous grape variety. The nose is characterized by a hint of red fruit, harmonized by the presence of local grape variety which completes the tones with sensations of wild strawberry and raspberry. This is a wine of good structure and alcoholic power, of good freshness and flavor. Harmonious and well-balanced wine.
