Genio Toscana Rosso IGP (igt) Limited edition

This special vintage created from a selection of Merlot grapes has been bottled in a limited and numbered edition of these very particular heavy bottles in order to keep it better and longer. A real gem for collectors, wrapped in a label created by the famous Milanese artist Giuliano Grittini who was inspired by the works of our famous fellow countryman Leonardo Da Vinci.

Appearance deep ruby, nose wild red berry fruit, spices and subtle notes of vanilla. Palate warm, supple and expansive, with velvety tannins and with a crisp acidity; lengthy finish that completes a very harmonious wine. Serving suggestions all meats, young cheese and charcuterie.
