Tasting Notes

The carefree synthesis of a serious grape, made from the vineyards of Marsiliana Estate in Maremma, Birillo is the epitome of a joyful, fruity wine made from cabernet sauvignon and merlot. The deep, brilliant violet in the glass has a mysterious smoothness that characterizes the nose with aromas of jam and strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, Mediterranean herbs, and black olives. An original and marine wine whose vibrant hues and aromas open up to a full, fruity sip. The tannins are balanced with its agility and with lightly toasted notes that accompany the prevailing density of its fruit, until the final flavorful, refreshing sip.
