In the mouth: good volume with evolved and soft tannins; slightly bitter and astringent but not dry in the finish; persistent in the mouth.

Traiano: why is it called so? Both wines also take inspiration from character and name from two Roman emperors. In the name of the second Rosso Coner Doc of the company there is a strong reference to the territory, in fact Traiano left from Ancona for the mission of conquering Dacia.
