Winemaker's Notes

A Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon super-Tuscan blend, this wine shows rich, dense aromas of wild cherry and black currant offset by notes of leather, herbs and vanilla. On the palate, it is velvety and complex, with ripe tannins repeated on the elegant finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A gorgeous wine, this is fresh, lively and elegant. Black currant, violet, cherry and mineral flavors abound, and the tight structure will ensure longevity. Well-proportioned, but firm on the finish. Needs time to unravel. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2014 through 2025."
