[ Balsamic / Herbaceous / Fruity / Smooth ]
Toscana Rosso IGT
A name that is a paradigm for a wine that fascinates with its enveloping deliciousness, created using Tuscan grapes in a blend of charm and character. Rich in aromas, fruity, balsamic and herbaceous sensations, it boasts hints of cherry, cinchona and coffee. On the palate it is persuasive and full, warm and rich, supported by a good acidic flavor and a long finish that tastes like fruit, herbs and underbrush.
