DESCRIPTION

Earthy aromas of blue flowers, game, tilled soil, red berry and leather come together in the glass. The elegant palate offers juicy red cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and savory herb, while a backbone of firm but fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity provides an age-worthy structure.

80% Prugnolo Gentile (Sangiovese), 10% Canaiolo Nero, 10% Colorino. 24 months in oak.
