Barbazzale Rosso, Nerello Mascalese with a low percentage of Nerello Cappuccio, is vibrant ruby red, perfect for first-time wine drinkers. Delightful scents of raspberry and blackberry, wild flowers interwoven with light mineral scents. Very pleasant freshness on the palate, with a fresh tasting hint of acid.
