This wine explodes from the glass with scents of black cherry, licorice, earth, minerals and a stylish coating of vanillin oak. Deep, full and lush on the palate, with core of succulent fruit, beautifully integrated tannins, and a long, complex, utterly profound finish.
Grapes: 60% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet, 20% Merlot
Very jammy for the vintage, with plum and raspberry character. Full and very soft, with round tannins and a long caressing finish. Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet. Best after 2009. 25,000 cases made.
