Winemaker's Notes:

Santa Margherita is renowned for its elegant and authentic Italian style. This wine is made with grapes from its vineyards in the heart of Tuscany's Chianti Classico region and is a blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot grapes. The additional aging time required to be a Riserva produces softer tannins and a more mature finish.

The color is deep and dense ruby red, with aromas of very ripe black cherries and plums, then floral hints of gladiolus. The palate exudes initial fruits and spices that shift gradually into fruits and herbal notes.
