Blend: 50% Sangiovese, 45% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
"Everyone loves a wine like this: The aromas are soft, penetrating and remind you of chocolate fudge, spice, spresso and black currants. There’s precision and a careful balance here between softness and power. The tannins are supple and smooth, yet the wine extends deeply throughout the palate."
"Crushed flowers, raspberries and sweet toasted oak waft from the glass as this beautiful wine reveals its feminine personality. The red fruit turns darker on the palate, where
leather and spice overtones add further complexity... with well-integrated tannins, notable persistence and commendable
The Wine Advocate
"This sleek and jammy blend is 50 percent sangiovese and 45 percent merlot (the remainder is cabernet sauvignon). The fruit feels primary and fresh, a strawberry sweetness that's framed by sandy tannin. Balanced and long, this will match pork ribs fresh off the grill."
Wine & Spirits
"Subtle yet complex aromas of mineral, currant and blackberry. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a caressing finish…balanced and refined."
