DOC since 1968, Rubesco is no doubt Lungarotti's most popular wine world wide. The name comes from the Latin verb rubescere, "to blush". This wine is ready for immediate consumption but will further improve with bottle aging.
Color: Deep and intense ruby red
Aroma: Intense, with great character in expressing the spiciness (sweet tobacco, pepper, cinnamon); the spicy notes are supported by a great concentration of small red fruits and jam
Taste: A wine with solid structure and good concentration, it has strong and enveloping tannins; decisive in revealing the red fruits, it closes with great complexity and a soft finish.
A perfect wine both for everyday meals and for special dishes, with pasta or risotto, steaks, lamb, roasted white or red meats, barbecued foods and naturally, cheeses. Due to its medium body, it is also excellent for preparing sauces.
