Tasting Notes and Technical Details
This wine is a deep purple in colour with ruby highlights. The intense and fruity nose displays aromas of red plum and cherry with subtle hints of oak from barrel ageing. Rounded and ripe on the palate, it shows a perfect balance of fruit and well-integrated tannins. There is a hint of spiced berries on the long, elegant finish.

The grapes for this wine are sourced from the Capezzana vineyards situated at approximately 150-200 metres above sea level, facing south, south-east and south-west. Soils here are clay schist (Galestro rock) and limestone (Alberese rock) which give Barco Reale a lovely freshness.
