Colour: ruby red. Nose: at the beginning you can perceive a strong fresh red fruit, such as currants, strawberries and cherries. The violet is clearly recognizable on the palate. Mouth: pleasant, fruity wine, supported by the typical acidity of Sangiovese and characterized by long and elegant tannins. It goes with: grilled red meat, white meat, medium aged cheeses. An ideal wine also as an accompaniment throughout the meal.

Wine SpectatorA beauty, this silky red is packed with dark cherry, leather, iron and earth aromas and flavors. Harmonious and long, with a well-integrated structure and a mineral-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2029. 2,500 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis opens with aromas of blackberry jam, exotic spice and a whiff of French oak. The palate is tight and lean, offering prune, star anise and a slightly green note of powdered sage alongside astringent, grainy tannins that leave a dusty finish.
