Appasimento Leggero IGT Red 6 x 75cl
Merlot grapes are grown in the warm basaltic soil while Corvina is found in the upper Val d'Alpone. The grapes are left to dry in the vineyard for 30 days, this allows the concentration of the ripe fruit notes and the loss of about 35% of the weight. After pressing, the skins are left in contact with the must to release and transfer the typical colour of this wine. Aged in cask for at least one year. Intense ruby red with garnet reflections. The perfume is elegant, spicy and fruity. Rich, round with pleasant spicy and vanilla notes.
