Rosso Toscano IGT "Rosso di Clausura"
ROSSO DI CLAUSURA is the gem of Certosa di Belriguardo, a symbol of grace and elegance. While a spicy component and the aromas of ripe fruit and plum jam characterise the nose, its greatest merit is undoubtedly its velvety smoothness on the palate, where it expresses all its roundness and allure in a deliciously savory finish. Rosso di Clausura penetrates your soul with the very first sip.
