The 2021 opens to inviting aromas of cherries and plums which are laced with spices, tobacco, earth and hints of licorice nuances all taking shape. Medium-bodied and structured with fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity that frames the core of red fruits and spices which persist throughout. This lovely Rosso that is drink beautifully today and should continue to evolve with short-term cellaring.

Aromas of lavender, ripe raspberries, plums and peppercorns. Medium-bodied with firm, chewy tannins. Youthful and rustic. Drink from 2023.

Product Description:

In the Elcione, Merlot and Cabernet merge together with Sangiovese, showing an Umbrian soul that adds charm and magic to the international flavor of the Bordeaux blend.

The color is a bold ruby red, on the nose it is fascinating and elegant with notes of forest fruits, black cherry and spices. In the mouth, it shows elegance, minerality and great pleasantness in the flavors of currants and graphite. Excellent drinkability that can also improve year after year.
