Paolo III Farnese – Castello di Oliveto


Paolo III Farnese – Castello di Oliveto

IGT Toscana Rosso

From a careful selection of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, a wine with a deep ruby red color with garnet reflections is obtained which, after the necessary aging, obtains a fine and persistent ethereal perfume with notes of black berry fruits integrated with pleasant spicy hints.
In the mouth, the taste is an excellent balance between alcohol and tannins, with a sweet, soft and persistent finish. The history of this wine dates back to the time when Paul III, returning from the congress held in Nice, stayed in Oliveto for 10 days in 1541. Since then, as long as he remained alive, the Castle’s wine was sent to Rome every year. It goes perfectly with game and braised dishes.
