DOC FCO Rosso “NARCISO”

Composed primarily of Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Completed by Cabernet Sauvignon or Refosco, in percentages that vary each year according to the season. Full-bodied, elegant, with an intense ruby red colour. The grapes used in the blend, rappresent the absolute best selection from our most vocated vineyards.

Long ageing in new and semi-new barrique gives the wine elegance and smoothness, while the bouquet is enriched over time by hints of spices and liquorice. This wine has a surprising aging potential.
