The 2010 Secco Bertani will make you think of Vespa motorcycles and nostalgic scenes from the movie, Roman Holiday. Packaged with retro flair, this ?vintage edition? is composed of Corvina, Sangiovese Grosso, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Apparently, the blend is some sort of secret recipe that Bertani has jealously safeguarded since 1889. It shows plush fruit notes with measured spice, chocolate and tobacco.
