Winemaker's Notes:

A textbook Tuscan offering revealing notions of saddle leather, forward cherry fruit, smoke, herbs, and earth. Robust-bodied with tangible acidity, this easy-drinking wine is best consumed over the next 2-3 years.

A fresh, fruity and youthful blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Cabernet and Merlot vinified 80% in concrete tanks and 20% for 6-8 months in tonneaux.

Sangiovese - 75% Cabernet sauvignon - 10% Canaiolo - 10% colorino & merlot - 5%

My Notes:

About Ambra:

"Ambra has become my favorite producer of Carmignano. I am a sucker for their super-rich, expansive, creamy-textured style of red wine. Ambra's wines are the Pomerols of Tuscan viticulture." -Robert Parker
