Winemaker's Notes

A Sangiovese wine produced in the heart of the Chianti region, this wine is aged one year in the barrel and one in the bottle before release. It has a deep purple color, full and rich in tannin, yet rendered soft and round on the palate, with the great ability to age well.

Critical Acclaim

"Lovely sophisticated aromas of plums, berries and chestnuts follow through to a full-bodied palate, with super, well-integrated tannins and a polished, silky finish. Very fine. Sangiovese. Best after 2003."
