Elcione Umbria IGT

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Italy

Region: Umbria

Grapes: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese

Tasting Notes: 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 than can also improve year after year.

Food Pairings: Classic Italian cuisine

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