Winemaker's Notes:

This wine explodes from the glass with scents of black cherry, licorice, earth, minerals and a stylish coating of vanillin oak. Deep, full and lush on the palate, with core of succulent fruit, beautifully integrated tannins, and a long, complex, utterly profound finish.

Grapes: 60% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet, 20% Merlot

My Notes:

About Piccini:

The Piccini winery is located in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone and possesses strong Tuscan traditions. Now in its 126th year of business, the Piccini winery torch has been passed down to the fourth generation of Piccini's. New DOCG wines now complete the entire Tuscan portfolio including Chianti, Chianti Superiore, Chianti Classico, Chianti Classico Riserva and a new Super Tuscan, Sasso al Poggio and Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino.
