James Suckling, 92 Points- Crushed blackberry and blueberry aromas with hints of flowers. Medium to full body. Linear, fine tannins that are round and polished.

GRAPES- Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

Vineyards of between 6 and 40 of age at 420-655 meters above sea level, with southwesterly and westerly exposures. Vinification in stainless steel, with brief maceration; maturation for 6 months in stainless steel, then a year in large casks for the Sangiovese and in used barriques for the French varieties.

There is something almost sweet and soft in its scents of cyclamen, mulberries and blueberries, tobacco, cocoa and cinnamon. Mellow sensations flood the palate: the tannins are rounded and satisfying, the acidity well calibrated, and the finish expressive and well-focused.

It has what might be called “a love match” with pulses, and in Tuscany one is spoiled for choice: chick pea soup, beans, vetches and lentils, unfailingly served with a drizzle of intensely flavored extra virgin olive oil and various aromatic herbs. But it also has the vigor to stand up to visceral dishes like lampredotto (cow’s tripe).
