IGT Rosso Cidìce - Piombaia
Cidice represents the simplest expression of the Sangiovese di Montalcino according to Piombaia’s philosophy: made to rest only in stainless steel tanks without aging in wood, it is a fresh wine, with plenty of primary aromas and flavors. To be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif, or with light meals.
