Know that one friend who always seems to win at video games? This wine is pretty much their equivalent because it’s always a winner.
Fun Fact: This wine regularly receives the highest rating of Tre Bicchieri from Gambero Rosso, which is an astounding achievement!
Elegant dark ruby red. Juicy cassis, cedar wood and wild strawberries on the nose. The palate reveals plum and dried cherry mixed with delicate nuances of rosemary, pepper and mediterranean spices. Balanced with a silky soft and complex structure, closing in an impressively long finish.
Iconic and historical, this wine is the ideal marriage of international French Cabernet and Merlot with local Tuscan Sangiovese grapes. From vines with an average age of 20 years in a 10 hectare vineyard 100m above sea level. A blend comprising of 65% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot and 15% sangiovese. Fermentation occurs in open wooden vats for the Sangiovese and in stainless steel for the French grapes. Both receive a manual punching down for the gentle extraction of tannins. Aged in French oak barriques for 18 months, followed by 12 months of refinement in bottle.
