The fruity components of the bouquet are joined by notes of barrel ageing and even more fruity, balsamic nuances.
On the palate, the Montebello from Badia a Coltibuono opens wonderfully aromatic, fruity and balanced. On the finish, this storable red wine from the Tuscany wine-growing region impresses with its beautiful length. Once again, there are hints of mulberry and blackcurrant.
