Colli Euganei Rosso Doc
Ortone is our Colli Euganei Rosso, born from the union of Merlot and Cabernet grapes, in equal measure. The vinification process takes place in stainless steel tanks, while wine partly ages in oak barriques and partly in large barrels. An intense ruby colour and fragrances of red fruits – cherries in particular – are the main features of this wine. In the mouth, it finishes with a savory note, moderately alcoholic.
