Region/Appellation: Chianti DOCG, Tuscany, Italy


Varietal/Blend: 85% Sangiovese, 15% Canaiolo.


Vintage: 2016

Tasting note: Profound and intense ruby color. A great and complex nose. Flavors of red fruits and spices (graphite, vanilla, tobacco). In the mouth, the entrance is powerful but balanced by silky tannins. The final, very pleasing and balance, is very long and remains in the memory of the taster for many minutes.
