Cantine Russo Luce di Lava Rosso 'Light of Lava' 2016
With a bright ruby ??red color, a pleasant scent of red fruits and delicate spices stands out on the nose. The flavor is balanced, persistent and full-bodied, with a pleasant fruity note that blends with a bouquet of black cherry jam. Excellent persistence.
