Rivarossa Schiopetto 2018

Schiopetto's Rivarossa 2015 is a red wine with Bordeaux-style of Friulian origin. It is characterized by a bright ruby red garment and a variegated and inviting aromatic bouquet: notes of cherries and small berries are combined with aromas of tobacco, black pepper and licorice root. The taste is velvety thanks to soft, ripe tannins and a spicy finish.
