Winemaker's Notes

Mostly Sangiovese Grosso, plus small quotas of the indigenous Canaiolo and Mammolo grapes; the former characterized by roundness and soft texture, the latter by a delightful bouquet of violets. The Riserva is from an even stricter selection of the grapes, with greater aging potential. Aged in oak barrels - 15 months for the regular, and over 24 for the Riserva - and released 2 years from vintage (regular)/3 years (Riserva). Elegant bouquet, wonderfully integrating ripe blueberry jam and the spice and vanilla of oak; plummy fruit evolving to iris and violets; full body, firm tannins and remarkable breed.
