Variety: Merlot 70% and Cabernet Sauvignon 30%

Slightly dull ruby ​​red color.

On the nose it is the only Valcalepio to show off this carat of aromas, with currant, raspberry, plum and subtle but effective spicy notes. The notes of Mediterranean scrub, aromatic herbs and green pepper follow.

On the palate it is balanced, by virtue of the classic minerality extracted from Pontida’s Flysh, and a well-defined freshness. The creaminess expressed by the softness is also excellent, for a wine as a whole more than satisfactory. The aromas are of wild berries, aromatic herbs and blueberry.

Great lombard red wine.
