Peach and cherry nectar with a layer of fine velvet on the nose. Fine tannins with fresh berries with a hint of fine wood develop complexity. Elegant, fine finesse. Sangiovese and Canaiolo. This is real Tuscan wine. Cool wine. Drink now.

(Sangiovese and Canaiolo Nero): Dark red. Pungently floral aromas of ripe red cherry, raspberry, juniper berries and underbrush. Fresh and juicy, with lively acidity nicely framing the ripe red cherry and berry flavors. The long finish features a repeating violet nuance. 90 Points

The grapes are manually harvested and go through a gentle destemming process and are placed inside specialized stainless steel tanks. In the tanks, the must goes through rotary agitation during the first 7-9 days of the fermentation process in order to obtain maximum extraction and separation of seeds to reduce harsher tannins. The must gets fermented by yeast that naturally collects on the grape skin, with controlled temperatures and oxygen levels.
The wine ages for 12 months in tonneau where the malolactic fermentation takes place with an additional 6 months in cement tanks and refinement in bottle for 6 months before releasing.
Bottles Produced: 12,000
Intense ruby red with garnet reflections. Scents of complex mature fruit, spices and aromatic herbs that give a persistent aroma; the texture is round, with a full body and finishes with soft tannin.
