IGT Costa Toscana Merlot Sotto La Quercia

It is the soul wine of Sode di Sant’Angelo as it best expresses the character and personality of the “terroir” of the metalliferous hills, being elegant and at the same time hematic and glyceric. Equipped with remarkable structure and softness thanks to the slow and natural process of “elevage” inside the precious wood of the barriques.
