Rosso Piceno Superiore 'Solestà' Velenosi 2020

Rosso Piceno Superiore "Solestà" is a red wine with a full-bodied and rich sip, obtained from a blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese grapes and aged for 16 months in new barriques. The olfactory framework is ample and stratified, painted by notes of violet, currant and black cherry, with marked outlines of sweet spices and toasted notes. In the mouth it is silky and harmonious, warm, smooth and with a dense and tasty texture
