Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) This riserva exhibits brilliant ruby red hues and an ample bouquet of flowers and vanilla. Rich layers of ripe fruit are followed by hints of tobacco and a dry, almond-like finish.

    (2001 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. 95% Sangiovese, 5% Cigliegiolo and Cannaiolo from a single vineyard. Wine with great varietal character, sapid cherry nose, slightly smoky. Well balanced on the palate between acidity, grippy tannins and fresh juicy fruit. A classy, elegant wine with a long, generous finish. Drink 2006-12.
