A blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Rosso Celtico is a new take on a classic. A full-bodied wine with sweet tannins and plenty of extract to balance out the whole structure. It is juicy and rich with a surprising lush style.
In a region famous for its whites, Michele Moschioni has been daring enough for the past 40 years to only make reds. A pupil of the godfather of Amarone, Giuseppe Quintarelli, Moschioni's red wines are legendary.
