    Winemaker's Notes:

    A textbook Tuscan offering revealing notions of saddle leather, forward cherry fruit, smoke, herbs, and earth. Robust-bodied with tangible acidity, this easy-drinking wine is best consumed over the next 2-3 years.

    A fresh, fruity and youthful blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Cabernet and Merlot vinified 80% in concrete tanks and 20% for 6-8 months in tonneaux.

    Sangiovese - 75% Cabernet sauvignon - 10% Canaiolo - 10% colorino & merlot - 5%

    Critical Acclaim:

    Deep red. Lovely red fruit aromas show above average depth and complexity for this category of wine, with pretty floral and vanilla nuances adding appeal. The ripe and very pure flavors of redcurrant, red cherry and cranberry are utterly captivating, with lively acidity and polished tannins giving the wine shape and structure. Finishes with lingering violet and marzipan note. This is like putting your nose into a bowl of mixed ripe red fruits; I really found it hard to put the glass down. This may be the best young Barco Reale (the younger, lighter-styled wine of the Carmignano category) that I have ever tasted.
