Montigoli Appassimento Rosso IGT Veneto
A blend of Corvina, Rondinella. This bottle of Montigoli presents a bottle of ruby red with garnet hints. This bottle surprised us a bit, lil sweet on the nose with notes of vanilla and cherry. Sweet on the palate, medium-bodied with round & soft tannins and a long finish on the palate with spiced notes. Definitely an easy drinking bottle of wine.
