Tasting Notes

An incredible blend where Sangiovese’s freshness prefectly merges with the Cabernet Sauvignon’s backbone. Another fine example of a great blend for ageing.

On the nose, the wine reveals notes of blueberries, blackberries, incense, medicinal herbs and sandalwood. With hints of blackberry jam and cinnamon. On the palate it develops like a balsamic explosion supported by good acidity. The lively tannin on the whole palate accompanies the savory and persistent finish.

Vinification: Separate fermentation for the two varieties is made in stainless steel tanks with the use of indigenous yeasts. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration on the skins lasted up to 20 days. The malolactic fermentation was completed in wooden casks.

Ageing: Aged for 18 months in oak, 85% of which are french barriques (225 lt) and 15% large Slavonian cask (only for Sangiovese).
