Dark ruby in color with a wide brick/ reddish rim.
On the nose blueberries, cherries, cooked strawberries, earth, wood, licorice, spices, chocolates, eucalyptus, pencil lead, light alcohol, herbs and black pepper.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, dark chocolates, peppercorn, earth, black tea, wet leaves, herbs, pencil lead, dark coffee, leather and spices.
Medium plus on the finish with round tannins and tangy cranberries.
This is a very nice Sangiovese based Tuscan wine. Showing nice complexity and structure. Tangy and interesting.
Still young and needs a few years in the bottle to mature, but starting to drink nicely now. Will age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.
This Single Vineyard needs time to open up, so be patient. I gave it two hours in a decanter to open up properly, and show the structure, tannins and the pretty nose.
A good food wine that I paired with meats, cheeses and crackers. Will pair nicely with BBQ meats too.
A blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in French oak barrels for 15 months. Limited production.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
