Italian Red Wine "Dragone Rosso IGT" - Cantine Lento
The Italian red wine "Dragone Rosso IGT Calabria" is a magnificent interpreter of the synthesis between the prestige of international vines and the peculiarities of the Calabrian native varieties. Born from the best grapes of Magliocco, one of the most ancient vines of the Mediterranean brought to light after years of research and Merlot.
The production process involves the selection and manual harvesting of the grapes, which are subsequently de-stemmed and macerated for 4/5 days.
The wine obtained, after having completed the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation process, is refined in steel tanks and for a few months in French oak barrels.
