Winemaker's Notes:

"An excellent blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The bouquet is loaded with sweet fruit, lushness and a deft dollop of oak. A masculine yet bright wine, with cassis, cherry and the works. Finishes fresh, with chocolate notes. A value in its price range. Editors' Choice
-Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Wines of 2004

Deep ruby-red in color with hints of berries and wood. Complex and elegant with tannins, yet balanced, soft and rich in extracts.

60% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 5% Syrah

About Antinori:

The Antinori family of Florence, one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers, has lived in Tuscany since the 14th century and celebrated its 625th anniversary as wine makers in 2010. The current company president, Marchese Piero Antinori, believes in the tradition that the primary role of wine is to accompany food and enhance the dining experience. In Florence, the Antinori family has led a "Renaissance" in Italian wine making by combining long traditions, a love of authenticity and a dynamic innovative spirit.
