Ruby red with violet hues. The impact is intense and intriguing. The bouquet is complex, initially marked by deep notes of mature fruit, such as cherries, plums and small black berries, which fade into hints of spices, mint, sweet tobacco and refined balsamic notes on the finish. On the palate this wine is full-bodied and harmonious with silky tantannins. The mouthfeel is pleasant and fresh as Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot weave together with finesse, each adding its own distinctive character. The finish is incredibly persistent, with lingering notes of black berry fruit and cocoa.
Blend: 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot
