Tasting Notes

Solar and intense, full and vibrant, fragrant aromatic ensemble of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from the vineyards of Maremma. A dark purple wine, with the charm of dark fruits, blackberries and crunchy blueberries, enriched with the intense and balsamic notes of cardamom, caper flower, thyme and myrtle. On the palate it is an audacious velvet of wild berry jam, dark chocolate and juniper, with the flexuous balance in savory and defined tannins. The licorice delightful finish has the touch of a iodate Mediterranean night breeze.

History of Tenuta Marsiliana Birillo Rosso 2016

Birillo is an original red, very easy to drink and appealing. It could even be described as a “mini-Super Tuscan.” It is, in fact, a pleasant wine for all types of meals, with characteristics like that of a Super Tuscan—power, depth, color, refinement, and with a typical composition of aromas found in those great wines; yet it is made to be simpler, smoother, and overall more accessible for everyone.
