This wine is made with 60% Petit Verdot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. The result is a complex and structured wine with aromas of ripe blackberry, bush, Mediterranean scrub, together with spicy notes of anise, sandalwood and cocoa. Casa Romana means “Roman house”. This bordeaux blend’s name is inspired by the baroque Renaissance palace of the noble Pallavicini family.
