Red Natura is a wine of a ruby red color with a garnet shade. Its aroma is fruity, reminding of red strawberry bushes and complemented by the subtle aroma of vanilla. On the palate, it is smooth and medium-bodied. Barbera gives freshness to this wine and combines perfectly with Cabernet and Merlot. Maturation in wooden barrels gives a particular quality to Merlot-Barbera, which is especially appreciated by those familiar with excellent red wines.
