IGT Rosso Rivale - Casanuova delle Cerbaie
A wine that blends the winery’s traditional Sangiovese with varying percentages of their soft and powerful Merlot. This rather intense and tannic wine is extremely smooth and pleasant on its own, as well as able to accompany any dish or conversation. A palate pleaser.
