Maclura - Rosso di Toscana igt
To the maclura pomifera, a splendid tree which originates from North America, and which adorns the entrance to Terre di Nano, we have dedicated the name of this red wine. It is made from a blend of Sangiovese and Merlot carefully chosen from the vineyard from which you can admire the medieval town of Monticchiello in the Val d´Orcia.
It is an elegant and refined wine, full bodied and well balanced.
The Maclura is a wine that can be appreciated even more with the passage of time.
