The rather hot summer was well mitigated by the rains of mid-August, which milded the average temperatures. This has favored large temperature variations, creating excellent conditions for an adequate and optimal ripening of the grapes. The exposure and the difference in soil conformation have clearly differentiated the degree of ripeness of the grapes and helped to carry out a gradual harvest where the different expressions of Sangiovese and the other vines have had the opportunity to give reachness in the blend of this wine. Food Pairing: Pleasant impact on the nose, where fresh, vinous and balsamic notes of cherry and menthol aromas stand out. The taste is fresh, soft and inviting and with sweet and enveloping tannins. This wine is pleasant to drink, and can be enjoyed throughout an entire meal.

Leads off a touch earthy, followed by black cherry, plum, leather and iron notes. Powerful, with a lively structure and moderate length. Drink now through 2024.
