Vèspo 2013 Coste della Sesia Rosso Le Pianelle
Made from Vespolina grapes, unlike most other wines made from this variety, it is a deep, aromatic red. Aged in small oak barrels, after a long fermentation, it is lush with red fruit, the typical Vespolina peppery aromas, and hints of liquorice and tobacco, without ever losing its lightness. Thus, it offers both body and lightness, and charms you into drinking with ease without missing out on good texture and intense fruit.
