An appealing marriage of old vine Sangiovese, Merlot and Ancellota. Sangiovese adds broad-faced, generous, marasca cherry while the Merlot is supple and round. The extremely rare, dark, intense Ancellota brings intense earthiness and terroir. Floral and opulent with cashmere tannins, hints of vanilla extract and red fruit reduction on the finish.
Blend: 60% Sangiovese, 35% Merlot , 5% Ancellotta
Stands alone or is perfect with steak Florentine, caprese, wild boar,
duck or spicy fusion cuisines such as Thai/French.
For the price it was quite a good wine. Not the best I have ever had, but definitely well worth the price. I won’t go into tasting notes because everyone’s pallet is a little different, but the wine is a gorges red and exhibits qualities of much more costly wines from the same region.
