Rosso Toscana IGT ‘Ricciolo’

label image label image

Tasting Notes

Ricciolo is a blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Syrah. All the grapes are sources from Montalcinto vineyards thus making this a true value for quality wine.

Deep ruby red, Ricciolo displays rich fruit aromas with a hint of spice. Dry and full-bodied backed by pleasant tannins and a long finish. Best enjoyed with roasts, grilled meat, game, salami and practically all of the dishes of the traditional Tuscan cuisine.
