IX Miglio Rosso

IX Miglio Rosso | LAZIO IGT ROSSO


Description

The grapes varieties composing this wine are Sangiovese, Montepulciano and Merlot; they are grown in the sunniest lots of our vineyard at the IX mile of Appia Antica, so that they reach a complete maturation. It is a very nice wine which can be drunk immediately after bottling and it is produced according to the procedural guideline of the DOP Castelli Romani. However, it is a Castelli Romani wine with a marked character: particularly fruity, it has fresh and lively perfume, joined by spicy notes coming from the blending. Another typical feature is saltiness, due to the mineral soil of Riserva della Cascina.
