Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas are of wild berry fruits, like blackberry and dried plum which then yield to richer impressions of candied fruit and dark chocolate. Nuances of vanilla and tobacco leaf. Rich and full-bodied in the mouth, this wine has tannins that are perfectly balanced and well integrated. A lively acidity brightens its fruit. The long-lived, delicious finish is infused with aromatic, ripe fruit.

About Tenuta La Badiola:

Tenuta La Badiola lies in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, southwest Tuscany. It is located in a delightful natural setting of gently rolling hills carpeted in olive groves and vineyards. The view from the estate stretches to where the turquoise of the Mediterranean waves merge with the intense blue of the Tuscan sky.

Trattoria Toscana is a restaurant on the Badiola estate. It is the only Alain Ducasse restaurant in Italy. The estate is also home to a luxury hotel called L’Andana, and the property hosts a championship golf course and exclusive spa.
