Rosso di Montepulciano D.O.C.

Fattoria Svetoni

This red wine has a shy nose that eventually reveals suggestions of dark-skinned berry, underbrush and a whiff of leather. The firm palate is lean, evoking dried cherry, prune and powdered sage alongside grainy tannins that leave a drying, almost gritty finish.
