MONTECUCCO ROSSO

Strong Heart, three noble souls

The color is an intense ruby that evokes pleasant evenings in front of the fire. The olfactory bouquet is wide and complex: notes of ripe berries blend elegantly with hints of vanilla and sweet spices, in a harmonious combination that invites you to take a sip. In the mouth, the compactness of the flavors and the rich tannicity are juxtaposed with a softness of yesteryear, ensuring a long, satisfying persistence. The result of the harmonious union of three noble grape varieties. The 70% Sangiovese, with its fruity notes and intense softness, is the pulsating heart of our nectar. Alongside it, the 25% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, sweet and juicy, contributes an explosion of delicate flavors, making this wine round and pleasant on the palate. But that’s not all. Completing the team, a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon (5%), powerful and vigorous, gives our wine that touch of pronounced elegance and persistence, just as befits a great wine.
