Lake Garda red wines - Provincia di Mantova IGT Rosso Magrini

A deep colour, a pervading and rich bouquet, a long persistence and an important and well-balanced structure. Realized only in the best vintages from Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, this lake Garda red wine represents the true pride of Cesare and Franco Gozzi.
The grapes are selected in one of the eldest vineyard in the farm: vigna Magrini, which, thanks to the rocky and calcareous ground and to the optimal exposure, produces in very little quantities, with great quality results.
