Colmello Rosso edizione speciale is born of Merlot and Franconia harvested in 2000. After fermentation on the pomace in a controlled-temperature environment, this wine was left to age in not-overly-large barriques for seven years. It was transferred into bottles in October 2007.
Colour: impenetrable ruby-red with garnet-hued accents.
Bouquet: intense and generous, offering a range of scents: hints of sweet chocolate, a slight cocoa bite, cinnamon, nutmeg, white pepper, Mediterranean spiciness, brown tobacco, anise and licorice, accompany the intense traces of ripe plum and morel cherry.
Taste: on tasting, all the promise of the bouquet emerges, full and powerful. The tannins stand out--delicate, compact, sweet and harmonious—savouriness and acidity in perfect balance, sustained by a significant level of alcohol content. A velvety, elegant, high-class wine, perfect for awakening in each of us the emotion of its emergence following extended barrique aging.

Perfect with all types of meat and aged cheeses. Why not give in to the temptation of pairing it with chocolate desserts? Ideal at the end of a meal for leisurely meditation. A superlative wine for celebrating those special events.
