Tasting notes

Pian delle Vigne is a vibrant ruby red color. Its nose expresses pleasant aromas of red fruit, such as cherries and sour cherries, with light floral hints of violets and lavender. On the palate, it’s fresh, refined and savory with supple, mouth-filling tannins; remarkable for its luscious fruit and lengthy finish. Extremely pleasant drinkability.
