La Calcinara Rosso del Conero DOC “Il Cacciatore di Sogni” 2014
Intense ruby red with violet reflections. Strong bouquet, overflowing with fruity scents of cherries, plums and leather. Intense and persistent in the mouth with frank tannins. Long and sweet at the end. To achieve its full potential and for the tannins to mellow, it generally requires a little ageing.
