'Rosso' Lazio VdT - 2015
Equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Tenuta di Fiorano’s volcanic soils, this Rosso has balletic power and grace. A swirl releases wild berry aromas, complemented by sweet spices, tar, and balsamic herbs, and each sip flaunts vigor, richness, and persistence. Fiorano Rosso is a powerful, elegant and complex red wine vinified in oak vats. The nose reveals a wide range of wild berries, sweet spices, tar and balsamic herbs. On the palate it is vigorous, rich, elegant and very persistent.
