' Quintessential Wines - Cortonesi La Mannella Rosso

Cortonesi La Mannella Rosso di Montalcino 2019


A core of cherry and strawberry highlights this rich and intense red, with accents of flowers and spice flavors. Fully balanced, long and ready to drink immediately upon release (but it can also be enjoyed through 2028). It remains vibrant and focused with a lingering finish.
