Filare 78 (Row 78) takes its name from the first row of Montepulciano grapes in our vineyard. Deep ruby red in color with purple tones, it has a complex bouquet; the sequence of aromas includes vanilla, violets, morello cherry, blueberry, coffee and liquorice. The first mouthful warms the palate and silky smooth tannins are immediately noticeable.

The finish is persistent, lingering flavours of mature fruit and spice remain long afterwards. Filare 78 ia s wine that will age for a long time and continue to evolve over time.
