Eleonora: uncomplicated, inviting and fragrant

versatile and lively – like Villa Caviciana

Rotwein "Eleonora" von Villa Caviciana Produkt

IGT Lazio Rosso

Eleonora is youthful, fresh and fruity at the same time but also powerful and elegant with a fine texture. Its combination of Merlot and mature Sangiovese provides a mellow structure with a full flavour. An ideal accompaniment to food without being too assertive.
