Rosso dell'Umbria. A great red wine, which comes from the typical and ancient Sagrantino grape, refined for five years in oak barrels. The colour is a deep garnet red. Its bouquet is pervasive and elegant with vanilla and honey aromas.
The taste is dry, warm and velvety and is perfect for tasting on special occasions, this being a wine to meditate upon. It is perfect for strong cheese, game stews, braised meat and nuts.
To be served at 18-20°C (64-68°F).
