    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ruby red with violet hues. The impact of the aromas is intense and fascinating. The bouquet is complex, initially characterized by intense notes of mature fruit, such as cherries, plums and small black berries, which then fade into hints of spices, mint, sweet tobacco and refined balsamic notes on the finish. On the palate it is full-bodied and harmonious and characterized by the finesse of its silky tannins. The taste is elevated by a remarkable pleasantness and freshness and a texture in which each varietal adds its own distinctive trait. The finish is incredibly persistent, with an aftertaste of black berry fruit and cocoa.

    Blend: 50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Alluring aromas of currants and fresh herbs with hints of rose petals. Full body, with juicy tannins and a tangy, fruity, and refreshing finish. Tar and spice undertones. A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot.

    This shows power and muscle, but the delivery is surprisingly soft and supple. The wine’s overall roundness is further reinforced by the irresistible tones of soft chocolate, cigar tobacco and black cherry, which lift straight out of the glass.

    This rich, full red's suave texture sets the stage for cherry, leather and underbrush flavors. The tannins match its rugged character, leaving a dusty, mouthcoating impression. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2014 through 2023.

    Do not agree with JS rating. I would rate 89-90. The wine is just OK and therefore overpriced.
