Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red in color with garnet reflections that increase with aging. The aromas are intense and persistent with floral hints of red fruits and spices. The wine has a remarkable texture and the taste is expressive, balanced, harmonious, very elegant, full-bodied and tannic that will evolve to become velvety with the progress of aging.

Blend: 95% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot

My Notes:

About San Fabiano Cacchiano:

Guido Serio and his wife Isa arrived at San Fabiano in 1983 and immediately made investments aimed at producing quality wines. They have gradually made progress over the time, renewing the vineyards, the wine-making chain, the bottling and the cellar for refining the wine in wooden barrels.

San Fabiano Calcinaia produces wines appreciated all over the world: Chianti Classico vintage, Chianti Classico Riserva "Cellole," Cerviolo Rosso Igt, Cabernet sauvignon Igt, Casa Boschino Igt, Cerviolo Bianco, a small production of the traditional Vin Santo of Chianti Classico, and of Grappa of Chianti Classico "Cellole," as well as, of course, the perfumed and fragrant extra virgin olive oil.
