Valcalepio Rosso DOC "I Pilendri'"

Valcalepio Rosso "I Pilendri'" is the result of passionate research and careful selection of the best Merlot and Cabernet grapes from the highest and brightest hillside east of Bergamo. The name Pilendri' is an ancient expression to indicate a particular soil characterized by steep and elevated faces. The wine is intended to be straightforward, persistent and harmonious with notes of Maracsa cherry and blueberry.
