Cantine Collalto - Incrocio Manzoni Rosso 2.15 Colli Trevigiani IGT 2011 - 0,75l
Warning: Last items in stock!
This rare grape variety is the fruit of long-term, dedicated research by Prof. Luigi Manzoni of the School of Oenology in Conegliano. By crossing the classic Glera (Prosecco) grape with the noble Cabernet Sauvignon, he
provided this area with a new variety that produces an ultra-delicious red wine redolent of crisp, dark berry fruit. Collalto remains one of the few Treviso-area producers that continue, with conviction and pride, to coax out the qualities of this grape, in vineyard and cellar, crafting a full-bodied, ambitious wine that is one of the winery icons.
