Wineword:Tellus - Marche Rosso IGT - Cocci e Grifoni Le Marche Reviews

Tellus is a red IGT wine, young, fresh and catchy, produced for informal consumption but also for the table with all kinds of dishes.

Produced from an intriguing combination of Montepulciano, Cabernet and Merlot grapes, it makes its mark thanks to its bursting youth, which is not reduced through aging in the wooden barrels, enabling it to reveal all the power of the primary and secondary aromas.

Intense ruby red with purple reflections; bold hints of cherry open in an array of ripe red fruit aromas.

Justly tannic, it leaves a pleasant clean sensation in the mouth. Tellus is surprising when served fresh at 16° C with fish soup.
