Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) This wine has pronounced flavors of black forest fruits, under layered by plums and tobacco. The Upper Galilee Merlot grapes provide the wine with a complexity which combines spicy aromas of Mediterranean herbs in a velvety, elegant body typical to the variety.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) The best tradition of the Sangiovese grape in Tuscany that, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, allows a youthful and intensely fruity blend. The ideal companion of simple dishes but also suitable for more complex matches.

Expert Reviews
  • Wine Spectator
    "A wonderful Brunello boasting mineral, violet, berry and cherry character and a hint of new oak. Full-bodied and powerful, adding loads of tannins and a very long finish. One to cellar for a long time; try in 1999. Better than previously reviewed."
