Elicius Umbria Rosso IGT 2008
Only the best grapes contribute to the creation of this wine whose name evokes the grandeur of the almighty Jupiter Elicius, an epithet that means God of lighting. Obtained from a blend of Montepulciano and Sagrantino grape varieties, this smooth, elegant and mellow wine, ages for 18 months in medium toasted French barrels and slavonian oak casks and refines in bottles for 12 months. Elicius is Mis en Bouteille au Château. The resulting intense dark garnet red wine, suggests enjoyable toasted aromas and intense fruited plum and cherry flavours. Elicius is suited for ageing and is ideal paired with venison, roasted and braised meat.
