Tasting Notes

Beating heart of Mediterranean intensity in a fruity and velvety dialectic game between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes ripened under the sun of the Maremma. In the intense and brilliant purple glass there are scents of violets and black cherries with a sweet note of cinnamon which makes the intensity of the blueberry jam delicious. The maturity of the forest fruits is refreshed on the palate by agile and defined tannins, and harmonious notes of fine herbs with myrtle and laurel, giving a pleasant vitality.

History of Tenuta Marsiliana Birillo Rosso 2017

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.
