Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Produced using 100% Sangiovese di Montalcino grapes and refined in Slavonian oak barrels for eight months, it is placed on the market after a minimum of one year from the harvest. A brilliant ruby red colour with a persistent bouquet of fresh fruit and wild berries. It is well-balanced on the palate, with delicately structured flavours of cherry, plum and berries.

Winemaker's Notes

Brilliant ruby red in color with a persistent bouquet of ripened fruit. On the palate, the wine is well balanced offering cherry and plum flavors with leather on the finish. Velvety with soft tannins. Recommended with roasted red meat and game. A Tuscan favorite with rabbit cooked in a spicy tomato sauce.
