Uncork at least an hour beforehand, then decant shortly before serving. This wine is particularly well suited to dishes of red meat, roasts and game.

Wine Enthusiast

Sangiovese is enhanced with tiny percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to create a fresh, balanced wine, with aromas of red fruit and savory spice. The mouthfeel is soft and rich with good structure and fullness.
