"This is Sangiovese with a small part Colorino. The 2018 Torgiano Rosso Rubesco is very bright and punchy with a mid-weight style. Aromas of tart cherry and redcurrant lift from the bouquet. Food friendly and fresh, with touches of blue flower and Mediterranean herb, this is a solid entry-level offering that's great for a trattoria dinner. Production stands at an ample 450,000 bottles."
