Winemaker's Notes

"Plenty of spices and light vanilla character, with hints of ripe fruit. Medium-to full-bodied, with silky and rich tannins and a long, delicious finish..."
-Wine Spectator

100% Sangiovese harvested from the Vigna del Teatro and Vigna del Piaggione vineyards. After traditional red wine fermentation, the wine is aged in a combination of large french oak casks and Slavonian casks for 3 years.
