    Winemaker's Notes:

    The intense ruby color and the bouquet displays aromas of blackberries, a sour blackcherry note and balsamic with hints of mint and sage. Full-bodied and rich to the palate, well-balanced, with a dense texture and long, matured tannins.

    The ideal accompaniment is with game, strong cheeses and roast meat. "This is the first commercial release of this wine, made by Roberto Cipresso from an estate on the western edge of Montalcino planted in 1994. This 2001 starts from a tight place, black with a scent of sappy fruit and the feel of hard, mineral tannins. Scents of rose petal begin to appear with air, those floral aspects contrasting the potent depths of flavor. A blend of old-fashioned elegance with clean, modern grace, this is built to last - a 20-year wine." 94 Points
