Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) Intense, vivid ruby red color with aromas of red berries, maraschino cherry and liquorice. The aromas repeat on the palate with more hints of liquorice and tobacco. Tannins are firm and a fruit is refreshed by a lively acidity that leads to a long, persistent finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) This red wine was born from the same grape as that of Brunello, the Sangiovese cultivated in Montalcino, and it comes from those young vineyards that give off those aromatic and elegant wines but it is not so tannic and full-bodied. Even though it will never become a Brunello, it is still however, a great wine of the same family and area, but with an easier approach.
