Cantine Collalto - Vinciguerra I Colli di Conegliano Rosso DOCG 2008 - 0,75l
Warning: Last items in stock!
The highly-valued spice and fruit characteristics of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, and cabernet franc find in this wine an intriguing complement in marzemino, a local grape variety that brings to the blend an unmistakeable touch of refreshing crispness. Collalto dedicates this impressive red wine, so classic to the hills of Conegliano, to Vinciguerra I, who in 1481 yielded his ancient name and title of Conte (Count) di Treviso to hold forever for himself and his descendants the title of Conte di Collalto.
