Merlot Sangiovese Rubicone Egot IGT Cevico
Easy Drinking, Fruity, Medium-Bodied
Italy, Emilia Romagna
NEW VINTAGE: Intense red colour with delicately herbaceous fragrance, lightly spiced with cherry notes.
You get more cedar scents from the Sangiovese than the smooth blackberry of the Merlot, but not so as you’d really be finding the fruit missing, just an all out good wine.
Food Match: A rounded, soft flavour, good with red pasta dishes and as a general all-rounder.
Egot is the name, in the Romagna dialect, for the typical earthenware mug used to drink wine. It contains the unit of measurement par excellence for the tasting of a good wine; generous enough to allow passage of the aromas, but not too spacious, and at the right temperature, leaving the taster with the desire to drink right down to the last sip.
As a range, these wines reflect the no nonsense Emilia Romagnan attitude to wine. Yes, it is important but it's the food that we are after, the wine it aids the journey, makes the heart sing with its easy fruity accessibility.
The cooperative, Cevico was founded in 1963 in order to produce high-quality wines. The 5000 member families play an active part in production, from harvesting the grapes to vinification in our bottling facilities at Lugo di Romagna, Forlì and Reggio Emilia, and they are also involved in the strategic decisions regarding the promotion of our brand. That’s because they all own Terre Cevico, and their goal is to continue growing, together with their wines.
The 5000 families of vine-growers, cultivate 7000 hectares of vineyards, and have 20 wineries.
They grow indigenous varieties, in an area where vines have made their home for over two thousand years: a wide basin, which stretches from Rimini to Casola Valsenio, passing through the territories of Cesena, Forlì and Faenza, as far as the sandy soils of the Park of the Po Delta in the north-east, and including the fertile Ravenna plain in the centre.
“This area yields distinctive wines, which are an integral part of us and reflect our character. Wines that are our ambassadors all over the world.”https://www.terrecevico.com/en/
