A Tuscan classic! Deep ruby color with garnet reflections, its elegant bouquet of leather, black cherries, liquorice and plums preludes a medium to full-bodied palate where ripe red fruit, goût de terroir, subtle notes of vanilla and violets harmonize and linger, interlacing with the soft tannins and silky texture. Firm backbone, perfect integration of acidity and fruit, well rounded, medium finish. Pairs well with pasta or risotto, red meats, fowl, and cheeses

85% Sangiovese with 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Reviews:

"Fresh violets, newly picked herbs, licorice and black peppers. Medium body, fresh acidity and a fruity finish. Drink now. A blend of sangiovese, merlot and cabernet sauvignon." -Rated 91, James Suckling
