Letizia: berrylike, elegant and full of finesse
versatile and lively – like Villa Caviciana
IGT Lazio Rosso
Letizia is a typical Bordeaux blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon and shows lots of strength and pedigree. With its subtle sweetness, the wine remains typically Italian with richness and creaminess.
