Poeta Toscana Rosso IGP (igt) Limitated 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 purple-edges ruby nose intense dark red fruit and wild berry with subtle vanilla nuances. Palate nicely balanced, with smooth tannins and a complex finish. Serving suggestions fresh cheese and first courses.
