The Marciliano Rosso Umbria from Tenuta Marciliano in Umbria shows a dense, purple-red color when swirled in the glass. Held at a slight angle, a transition of the wine's color towards garnet red is visible at the edges of this barrel-aged wine. If you give it a little air in the wine glass by swirling it, this red wine reveals a high viscosity, which can be seen in church windows at the edge of the glass. When poured into a red wine glass, this red wine from the Old World presents wonderfully expressive aromas of blackberry and blackcurrant, rounded off with cloves from the barrel ageing process.
This wine impresses with its elegantly dry taste. It was bottled with exceptionally low residual sugar. This is a genuine quality wine that clearly stands out from simpler qualities and so, despite its dryness, this Italian naturally delights with the finest balance. Excellent taste does not necessarily require a lot of residual sugar. This silky red wine is full-bodied and multi-faceted on the palate. With its vital fruit acidity, Marciliano Rosso Umbria is wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate. The finish of this mature red wine from the Umbria wine-growing region, or more precisely from Umbria IGT, is ultimately delightful with a remarkable aftertaste. The finish is also accompanied by mineral facets from the limestone-dominated soils.
