Located in the heart of Chianti Classico, on a hill that rises about 450 metres above sea level with a wonderful exposure to the sun, hence the name: SOLATIONE

The estate covers 14 hectares of land, of which 6 are planted with vines. The soil has an important structure with 65% of pure Alberese, a considerable skeleton of calcareous rock that particularly enhances the structure and minerality of the wines produced. The mixture of mineral substance gives colour, brilliance and secondary aromas that are characteristic of this structure.

Rosso Ombroso, is  100% Merlot, a brilliant ruby red strikes a perfect balance between its tannins and evident mineral notes, structure, alcohol.

The aroma is intense and complex: hints of sweet vanilla, licorice, dark chocolate, leather, black cherries, dark berries and hints of roses.

It is full body and long lasting on the palate.

Elegant and smooth as silk, excellent potential for aging in bottle.

An ideal wine for cold cuts, medium-aged cheeses, roasted meat, but also great combination with chocolate
