    Winemaker's Notes:

    Characteristics: intense, ruby red in color, its bouquet is delicate and persistent, with a slight scent of wild fruits; the taste is fullbodied, harmonious and round.

    Serving suggestions: roast and grilled meat, game and mature cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Sweet spice aromas of cinnamon and vanilla come at the heels of bright berry fruit and cherries. This is a plush, modern Merlot (with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon for extra texture and dimension) that offers well-integrated layers of fruit and oak spice. The mouthfeel is round, soft and long-lasting.

    Offers very attractive berry and milk chocolate aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with soft tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Clean and fruit-forward. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best after 2011. 3,500 cases made.

    Deep ruby with inky highlights. Sweet aromas of blackberry liqueur, licorice and dried flowers. Enters very large and ripe, but the dark plum, coffee and cocoa flavors are freshened by a cool mineral nuance. A wonderfully fleshy wine that finishes very long and smooth. Of the number of world-class merlots made in Tuscany, this is one of the most refined.
