Red Wine Botticino doc - Italian wine

This is a red wine, with a ruby-red color and purplish-blue reflections. It is produced in a hilly area at the foot of the Lombard Prealps, where the slope of the clayey-limy ground can reach up to 25%. A natural amphitheater sheltered from the northern winds creates a particular microclimate, oriented to the south-east and thus allowing for excellent sun exposure even during winter days.
