Montegrossoli Rosso Toscano IGT

A lively, fruity Sangiovese based wine that is a perfect accompaniment to virtually any meal. It has a light, ruby red color with aromas of bing cherry, raspberry, dried garden herbs and a hint of wet earth. Stylish and bright with some lasting grip on the dry and spicy finish.
