MANDRONE DI LOHSA

Maremma - Typical Geographic Indication (IGT)

Powerful yet elegant, smooth yet well structured - Mandrone is obtained primarily from Cabernet Sauvignon, with small but vital additions of Alicante, Petit Verdot and Carignano. These last two are essential in giving Mandrone the distinctive Mediterranean character - sunny, clean and definite - that renders it unique and unmistakable.
