Designation of Controlled and Guaranteed Origin
Settevie - the meeting point of no fewer than seven roads - is the old name for the hamlet where the winery is located. The wine’s style is contemporary: deep ruby red, with elegant aromas recalling raspberries when it is young, while after maturing in wood its bouquet becomes more balanced and refined. Opening recommended two to six years after the vintage, though it can be kept longer.
