Shows plenty of currant character, with toasty oak and hints of dried herb. Full bodied, with fine, silky tannins with a long finish. Very polished. Balsamic notes, coffee and tobacco leaves, woven deeply in a tannic profile of superb ripeness.

Sangiovese (70%),

Cabernet Sauvignon (30%)


A great red wine, with a very deep, persistent ruby red hue. The nose is evocative of mature red fruits, black pepper, leather, tobacco and liquorice. The full, powerful palate has great elegance, with attractive mouth-filling tannins. The intensely persistent nose is etheric, strong and broad, revealing notes of small fruits, berries, blackberry, aromatic wood and a hint of vanilla. The palate is dry and harmonious with a rich, elegant body and velvety tannins. Outstanding breed and mouthfeel. Long, exhilarating finish.
