“Pretty aromas of chocolate, black olives and dark fruit following through to a medium to full body with very fine tannins. A long and flavorful finish. So drinkable now, but it’ll be delicious in the future. A blend of Sangiovese, merlot and syrah. Better in 2020.” James Sucklings 93/100

A “Wine Farm” nestled in the heart of the Tuscan coast.

Vinification: The grapes are machine harvested, gently crushed and de-stemmed. The must is vinified in vertical fermenters for about 20 days at a temperature of 82° F. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is placed in 350-liter French oak barrels and aged for 12 months. Following barrel aging, the wine spends an additional period of 3 months aging in the bottle.

Colour: Intense ruby red

Bouquet: Complex with notes of ripe red fruit accompanied by hints of spices and liquorice.

Palate: Rich and medium-bodied revealing fresh and vibrant mixed berries, savory notes and milk chocolate that lead to polished tannins and a persistent, delicate finish.

Food Pairing: Pairs well with rustic pasta dishes, wild game and decadent sauces.
