Tasting Note:

Simply gorgeous. Enticing but vivid cherry and raspberry fruit with a tangy herb and rock salt tinge. The tannins are crisp and provide focus and structure to the wine, yet melt sumptuously into the mouth. A thrilling mix of seduction and vitality. A blend of 90% Sangiovese, 7% Canaiolo and 3% Colorino. A 40 year old single vineyard is planted at 420 metres above sea level, facing south west, on Albarese (hard limestone) and Galestro (softer limestone) soils. The wine is aged in large French and Slavonian oak casks for 26 months.
