The Bottrosecco is a red wine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet franc from Tuscany produced by the Fattoria Le Mortelle. This winery is located in the Maremma Toscana appellation. The Fattoria Le Mortelle has belonged to the Antinori family since 1999 and owns 170 hectares of vineyards. This dark purple Bottrosecco 2015 offers charming perfumes of black fruits (blackberry, cherry) associated to leather and cocoa. These impressions continue with the first sip of this velvety wine with nice and long-lasting aromas of black cherries and hints of chocolate.
