Tenuta San Pietro - Orma Romea Monferrato Rosso DOC

Tenuta San Pietro

Intense ruby red color with aromas of cherry and blackberry, combined with soft herbaceous and spicy notes. A rich wine with a soft palate, well-rounded and balanced tannins, delicate and complex. Pairs beautifully with grilled red meats, game, and rich pastas with hearty ragu. 

Serving Temperature: 16°-18°C / 60°-64°F
