Tasting Notes

‘Il Grottone’ has a deep red color. There are fragrant aromas of tobacco, plum, and ripe cherries on the nose. The palate is fruity, dense, and full-bodied with velvety tannins on the finish. It pairs well with stews, roasted meats, and aged cheeses. It can also be enjoyed as a meditation wine.
