Ruvido – Montepulciano
This aromatic wine is obtained from a wine made of 100% Montepulciano, flavoured with bitter herbs. The incorporation of natural flavourings happens after 8 months of aging the wine in oak barrels (tonneau). Once assembled, the wine rests for an additional two months in the bottle. The wine evolves with intense notes of red berries, liquorice and tobacco. The taste is creamy and full, firm and tonic with a persistently pleasantly bitter long note.
