Winemaker's Notes:

This is a very rare wine in that it is a 50-50 blend of Sangiovese and the local Canaiolo variety. Terrine is named after the vineyard where the old Canaiolo vines were growing and is full bodied but with a lovely, softer rich finish.

This is a sexy red wine - think Chianti meets Pomerol - with plump, juicy cherry, berry and vanilla flavours, a hint of tobacco, ripe supple tannins and a long satisfying finish. If you can keep your hands off it for five more years, it will be even more impressive, but don't be afraid of pulling the cork now.
