100% Sangiovese Grosso.
The 2009 vintage is ruby red in color with garnet highlights. On the nose, it has intense violet floral aromas as well as strong plum and blackberry notes, which are integrated with notes from the oak casks. Light spices and chocolate fuse on the aromatic finish with suggestions of leather, tobacco leaves and balsamic notes. The palate is ample and elegant with silky, yet supple tannins. The finish is lengthy, expressing vibrant acidity and mineral freshness. The wine is enjoyable now, but can also be stored to develop over time.
