Leone X Medici – Castello di Oliveto


Leone X Medici – Castello di Oliveto

IGT Toscana Rosso

From a mix of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon you get this wine with an intense ruby red color with garnet hues.
The perfume is elegant and persistent that recalls red berried fruits integrated with pleasant hints of wood. The flavor has an excellent balance between alcohol and sweet tannins and has an austere and elegant character. The wine is dedicated to Pope Leone X who, after the pilgrimage to the tomb of Santa Verdiana in Castelfiorentino, was a guest in Oliveto where he appreciated the cuisine and wines of the castle. Ideal to accompany red meat dishes and aged cheeses.
