Porpora, from the Latin purpùra, describes the reddish purple color obtained from the secretion of some molluscs used to dye fine fabrics. This term perfectly identifies the color and nuances of this wine, which is the result of the combination of a territorial grape such as Montepulciano and the finesse and elegance of Merlot. Expression of a terroir suited to wines of great personality.

Porpora is an expression of the generosity, which is found in the structure and complexity of the sip, but which is also typical of this land. Intense ruby red color, with violet reflections.
On the nose, lively notes of red and purple fruit, and a pleasant spiciness stand out.
In the mouth it has an intense, ample and enveloping tannic texture that finds balance with a vibrant acidity that characterizes a wine of great drinkability and pleasantness.
A spontaneous wine for those who love to drink without the need for formality.
Perfect with meat dishes. Try it with rack of lamb with herbs and traditional first courses.
