Legendary Italian sportbike maker Ducati has ventured into the wine game, releasing its first licensed vintage in collaboration with Le Pignole winery and distributor JPBari Italia. According to Ducati, its first release, Desmorosso 2006, is “a wine that is not afraid of comparison with the most famous vintages.”
Desmorosso 2006 is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 10% Carmenere. “The result is a wine of intense red color, with a perfume ample and intense expressed through notes of small berries and nuances of sweet spices.”
Ducati plans to release a series of wines throughout the year, with each meant for a specific occasion in your life. The Desmorosso 2006, is currently available online through the Desmorosso website in six bottle packs at a cost of 168 euros (U.S. $262), with a limit of one pack per order.
