Winemaker Notes

Made from 95% Montepulciano and 5% Sangiovese.

Unfined and unfiltered to preserve all its fleshy fruit flavors, this wine has a dark inky color and intense aromas of ripe blackberry, cherry and herbs, followed by licorice, black pepper and smoke. Generous yet pure on the palate with ripe, round tannins, excellent structure and delicate acidity. Recommended with rich pastas, game, sausages, stews and grilled meats. The perfect barbecue wine.

90 Points

"Vivid blackberry, melted licorice, pepper, and herb characteristics along with a full-bodied, powerful yet pure, supple-textured style."
