Winemaker's Notes

100% Sangiovese spends 11 months between stainless steel, Slavonian oak casks and French barriques. Color is intense ruby red. Bouquet shows hints of small berry fruits and flowers. Full, soft tannins, good structure, and persistent finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This grows smoky and savory with air, adding a layer of complexity to the flavors of ripe plum and strawberry. Match its firm tannins to roast rack of lamb."
