Melini Lilium is a super-Tuscan wine with real character and charm. Made from a blend of Sangiovese (bringing Italian charm), Cabernet Sauvignon (bringing dark, intense fruit) and Merlot (bringing its soft, fruitiness), this wine is an intense and vivid ruby red. Some of the grapes are partially dried, which adds a rich concentration. As you swirl it in the glass, there are delicious aromas of sweet cherry and raspberry, as well as a subtle earthiness.
Melini puts its signature to the IGT Governo all'Uso Toscano which has sprung from the rediscovery of a fascinatiing traditional method based on refermenting the wine when it has been drawn of along with raisined grapes.
