Tasting Notes

A dark purple wine, with the charm of dark fruits, blackberries and crunchy blueberries, enriched with the intense and balsamic notes of cardamom, thyme. On the palate it is an audacious velvet of wild berry jam, dark chocolate and juniper, balanced with defined tannins. The liquorish delightful finish has the touch of a iodate Mediterranean night breeze.

History of Tenuta Marsiliana Birillo Rosso 2015

The Marsiliana Estate is located in Manciano, in southern Maremma in Tuscany where the sea is felt in the climate, seen in the light, and breathed in the air. Because the estate’s territory is so extensive, the vineyards have been positioned at optimum plots among the hillocks for a total of 20 hectares. The soils of Marsiliana are composed prevalently of sand and silt over clay, giving life to extraordinary Mediterranean expressions of a Bordeaux blend. 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.
