Sensorial analysis

The red wine Moro Polo has intense ruby red colour, has hints of small red fruits, enveloping sensations of spices and balsamic herbs. It is characterised by a good freshness and surprises with a very clean drinking experience and a persistent end.

History of the Moro Polo and the Bordeaux blend

The journey of Merlot and Cabernet began in the Gironde in France and reached Italy in the second half of the 1800s. The round, ripe fruit of Merlot accompanied by the herbaceous notes and more pronounced tannic texture of Cabernet create the renowned "Bordolese blend".

Every name, every label has a meaning for us. For this Bordeaux wine, we decided to make a special dedication to Antonio Lionello, also known as "Moro Polo". A character closely linked to the land and values of the Euganean Hills, a sworn country guard with an upright and proud soul, capable of cultivating deep friendship and solemn commitment in the community. Moro Polo was chosen as a trusted forester by Count Giusti del Giardino, at the time the owner of vast plots of land on Venda, land that we partly look after today.


Moro Polo Rosso Colli Euganei DOC is perfect served at the table in combination with strong flavours such as red meat, a wild boar stew or pappardelle with a court ragout, and mature cheeses such as malga cheese. Serve at 18°C.
