Winemaker's Notes

Sangiovese (with a small amount of Canaiolo) is vinified in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks at a fermentation temperature of 28° C. It then spends time in steel tanks (30%), Sessile oak casks (50%) and barriques (20%). After blending, the wine is refined in French oak casks for two to three months.

Critical Acclaim

"There’s some earthy detail to the flavors of this wine. Rather than offering freshness, the edges of prune and plum have been polished into the dark chocolate tannins, creating a sleek red to serve with grilled fennel sausages."
