BOLGHERI ROSSO SUPERIORE DOC
Bolgheri Superiore Donne Fittipaldi is the wine that better represents the essence of Bolgheri, the extraordinary capability to deliver great wines with a strong mediterrenean character, bright but at the same time refined and elegant. A great red made with meticolous care, both in the vinerayd and in the cellar where nature is encouraged to show its most beautiful form.
