Wine Tasting Notes A blend of around 65% Sangiovese and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon. We are slowly starting to integrate the Merlot into this assemblage. The color is deep purple, ruby red. The nose shows blackcurrants with a hint of vanilla, black cherry, chocolate, licorice. On the palate juicy, ripe black fruit, black cherry, currants, creamy finish. (hide)
