Very intense, persistent and full. The initial bouquet is reminiscent of cherries, maraschino cherries, wild blackberries, black cherries, plums, with hints of the intense aroma of cinnamon, vanilla, leather, tobacco, violet and pepper. Taste: rich, supported by a strong structure and powerful tannins. The taste, accompanied by a high alcohol content, give it a long and pleasant aftertaste.
70% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. Classic 'Super Tuscan" blend.
Vineyard location: Pisan hills, Peccioli area. Altitude: 150/200 metres above sea level. Soil: sandy-silt-clay texture. Vine orientation and exposure: south-south west. Trellis system: spurred cordon.
Fantastic with rare fillet steak, game and with roasts.Beautiful also accompanied by mature cheeses
