Tasting notes: RossoDezza is our signature blend, based on decades of perfecting the mix of various grapes. This ruby red wine with brilliant reflections offers an intensity in which the pepper, licorice and strong tannins of the Cabernet Sauvignon are balanced by the Croatina grapes and enriched with the raspberry and cherry notes of the Barbera grapes. This wine ages well and can be cellared.

Ideal Soundtrack pairing: Once upon a time in America
