ARS VINUM - THE ART OF WINE Organically produced boutique wines from Italy

Richenza 2011

Vigna Petrussa

A blend obtained with the grapes of old autochthonous vineyards that produce a wine with an ancient taste and color. Aristocratic, this wine reminds one of the good things of the old days. Gold yellow color. In the nose it opens up finely and is persistent and harmonic with hints of exotic fruit, apricot, ripe peach and vanilla. In the mouth it is soft, velvetly and well-structured with a persistent aftertaste.

The comment of our oenologist

The Richenza is a wine with great concentration and maturation, fermented and aged in wood; density and absolute volume, sweetness is often at the limit. A perfect work – a wine that should be enjoyed without accompagnement in a big cup.
