Tasting Note:

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% ,Merlot and 15% Sangiovese. A bolgheri that is gentle in terms of both extraction and oak usage. Complex and structured with sense of measured power. Smart, neatly tailored tannins weave through the bright cassis fruit. Notes of gravel, salt and smoke add complexity whilst the long finish lifts with a herbal, sappy, savoury quality. Deeply satisfying, refreshing and beautifully crafted.
