Winemaker's Notes:

#49 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

Created from a 90/10 blend of Prugnolo Pentile (Sangiovese Grosso) and Canaiolo, this wine is deep ruby red with violet hues. The aroma of red fruit is accompanied by the underlying traces of wood having spent 24 months in Slovenian oak casks. The flavor is harmonious and full-bodied with soft tannins and good fruit. Pairs well with red meat, game and semi-mature cheeses.
