Virtus Langhe Doc Rosso

Virtus Langhe Doc Rosso

The most international of our wines made with a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Barbera.

Aging in French oak barriques gives this wine its great persolanity, deep ruby red robe, full complex and persistent character.

The nose offers sensations of mature berries and chalky mineral notes.

Its long harmonious finish makes this great wine a perfect match with variety of dishes above all grilled meats.

Grape variety:

Barbera 60% and Cabernet Sauvignon 40%.

Vinification:

Vinifiction on skins, traditional, with 10 days maceration and complete malolactic fermentation after the alcoholic one is carried out.

To be drunk with:

Thanks to its good structure and acidity (from Barbera grapes), it matches very well not only with red meats and medium aged cheeses, but also with rich pasta dishes.
