In the glass, the wine is ruby red with garnet reflections at the rim. On the nose the wine displays intense rustic red fruit with hints of violets, berries and cherries. On the palate the wine is velvety, well-rounded, full bodied and well balanced.
From vineyards planted to a minimum of 80% Sangiovese and a maximum of 20% of Canaiolo and other red grape varietals. Grape skins are macerated in the must and fermentation is controlled at low temperatures. After the final blend is assembled, the wine is aged for six months or longer in oak casks. The wine is bottled during the second year, then bottle aged in our temperature controlled cellars for 4/6 months before release.
Pairings: Pairs excellently with game and grilled red meats, as well as rich beef stews and pasta with meat-based sauces!
