Vino Novello, Italian for 'young wine', is a light, fruity, red wine produced in some regions of Italy and is the first red wine released after the new vintage.
It is meant to be drunk within the year, lightish with fresh fruity flavours. Ideal summertime red.
Novello is similar to its French cousin Beaujolais nouveau in taste, body, and colour, but is produced using several grape varieties with a more liberal fermentation process often under C02 (Carbonic Maceration)to preserve the fresh flavours.
Case: 6 bottles
