Appearance : Rich ruby red with purplish highlights. Bouquet : Fruity on the nose, with aromas of wild red berryfruit and notes of anise and sweet liquorice (classic to the sangiovese of this area), well melded into subtle nuances of spice. Palate : Velvety mouthfeel, with a finish laced with aromatic fruit and delicate vanilla.
