SANT'ANTIMO ROSSO DOC
Giovanna Ciacci Sant’Antimo is made from Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot grapes. It is a warm, sensual, and elegant wine with characteristics unique to its varietals but also representative of the land. Aging in barriques for about a year gives it optimal structure and good longevity.
