label image label image

Tasting Notes

‘Nero di Vite’ is a black color obtained by burning the pruned canes of grape vines, and was used by Michelangelo, among others. The wine is impenetrable ruby red and it is a blend of Sangiovese and Montepulciano. Mature red fruits on the nose with hints of spice, graphite, and chocolate. Well structured on the palate with fine tannins and a long finish. Pairs well with elaborate and hearty meat dishes
and game.
