International Wine CellarMedium-light ruby. Pretty sangiovese aromas and flavors of violet, redcurrant, and light tobacco are complemented on the palate by notes of licorice and plum. Very bright and fresh, with a delectable juicy sappiness to the fruit flavors, this is a smooth, uncomplicated and easy-to-like wine with impeccable balance.
