About
This wine is born from a selection of grapes coming from the vineyards which are considered to be the most suitable for ageing in large 50hl barrels. Composed of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Canaiolo and Colorino, it is vinified in steel for about 18 days. The maturing lasts 12 months in 50 hl barrels of Slavonia oak. Finally, it spends the last three-month period of ageing in glass.

Gary Walsh, The WineFront

Cherry, dried herbs and some meaty char, liquorice, and a bit of perfume too. It’s medium-bodied, but quite dense, with compact tannin, a distinct ‘mineral’ feel about it, dry but with good-flavour, and a firm finish of solid length. Needs to unfurl a little, but I like what I taste.
