Wine Description

The wine itself comes from a few of the region's finest vineyard sites, in the areas of Maremma, Colline Pisane, and Colli Fiorentini. Soil type goes from compact, including a very fine-textured limestone at 1,300-1,500 feet a.s.l, a classic, clayey/calcareous, rocky galestro also at altitudes around 1,300 feet, and clayey/siliceous/calcareous soil at an altitude of 820-990 feet. The finest selections are cherry-picked according to harvest conditions in the individual terroirs and microclimates. This balanced orchestration of geological diversity makes for the wine's consistent excellence.

Expert Reviews
  • Wine Buyer
    (2006 Vintage) Dark ruby in color, its bouquet of leather, earth, herbs, black cherries, licorice and plums is confirmed on the medium to full-bodied palate - round, spicy, elegant, attractively fruity.
