Quercia Rossa

Rosso del Frusinate I.G.T. Sangiovese

Red wine IGT A brilliant red wine, definitely of grat body, offering scents of black cherry, prunes and wild blackberries. The fermentation and finishing is done in small wood “botti”, accentuating the aromas of vanilla, liquorices and chocolate.
