WINEMAKER NOTES

The “Antico Colle” Vino Rosso di Montepulciano is made with a mixture of Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. The harvest normally takes place in October, once the fruit has reached optimum condition.

TASTING NOTES

The color of this wine is an intense ruby red with an aroma of red fruit and berries. With flowery undertones, and a harmonious and very agreeable flavor. New leather, eucalyptus and crushed herb aromas mingle with a whiff of violet. The simple palate shows dried cherry, a hint of prune and a touch of spice while dusty tannins lend light support.
