Winemaker Notes

The best selections of grapes are perfectly blended and aged one year in oak: 80% in Slavonian oak barrels, five to six years old, and 20% in barriques. The barriques are 10-20% new and 90-80% 2nd year. The wine is bottle aged for 12 months, and styled to a graceful balance of voluptuous berry tones and flexible/sturdy backbone.

A food-friendly red with all the classic Tuscan seductiveness including delicious fruit, velvety, extract-fraught texture, full body, beautiful finish and superb balance. Dark ruby in color, its bouquet of leather, earth, herbs, black cherries, licorice, and plums is confirmed on the medium to full-bodied palate. Round, spicy, elegant, attractively fruity and extremely versatile- in others words food friendly and pocket friendly.

Blend: 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot

James Suckling

Blackberry, blueberry and crushed-stone aromas follow through to a medium-bodied palate with lightly chewy tannins and dried lemon rind on the finish. Tangy and delicious.

Neil Empson and renowned oenologist Franco Bernabei conjunctly orchestrate these wines from Tuscany's very finest vineyard sites. Having access to the region's top crus and ideal microclimates means they can pick and choose according to harvest conditions, achieving consistent excellence with each vintage.

The superlative characteristics of chosen locations and strict quality parameters make for the wine's depth, structure, character and longevity.

Terrain includes compact, very fine-textured limestone, at an altitude of 400-450 meters above sea level; rocky, clayey/calcareous areas, also at altitudes around 400 meters; and clayey/siliceous/calcareous soil, at an altitude of 250-300 meters: a cross-section of Tuscany's best.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
