The Moro di SanGiovanni wine

As the ultimate expression of a tuscan grand vin, the Moro di SanGiovanni wine comes from the combination of a unique terroir, the typical grape varieties of the French wine tradition, the interpretation of an international wine making experience that translates the school of Bordeaux in Italian craftsmanship.

The solid and yet innovative qualities of the Moro di SanGiovanni wine cater to wine lovers seeking the excellence of a structured wine that prefers aging to express its aromatic richness with hints of fruit, flowers and spices and soften its powerful tannins.

The Moro di SanGiovanni wine is at its best when paired with roast meat, game, hard cheeses of good seasoning.

The wines of this vintage show extraordinary characteristics from both the flavors profile and structure.
