Vinified from certified organic grapes since 1994, Tufaliccio Rosso is a blend of 70% Montepulciano and 30% Sangiovese. Following fermentation and aging in stainless steel, this red blend displays all of the bright character of the fruit: deep aromas of violet, lavender, blackberry, and plum. The palate is smooth and well-rounded, displaying notes of graphite, loads of minerals, rose petal, and licorice with earthy mushroom flavors and clean tannins. This wine is named after the vineyard, which is located at the base of the Lepini Mountains and boasts rich volcanic soil or "tufa". Tufaliccio is a wonderful blend of rustic volcanic earth and smooth, rich fruit.
