ORIOLO

Romagna
Protected designation of origin
Sangiovese Oriolo

This wine gives the purest expression to the territorial identity of the Sangiovese of Oriolo, the small sub-zone (Additional Geographic Definition, or MGA) surrounding the Oriolo Tower, in the first sweep of hills between Faenza and Forlì, in the heart of Romagna.
A wine that releases an austere and fragrant fruit over floral notes, which in the mouth expresses finesse and the typical saltiness of this territory. Characterised by elegance and freshness with a complexity coming from the nuances of delicate aromas. A refined and well-balanced wine.
