750ml Bottles

Sangiovese grapes the most widely planted variety in Italy. Thin skinned, late ripening extends the growing season making for richer, stronger, longer lived wines. It’s  hand picked, soft pressed, the must ferments in stainless steel tanks on the skins for 20 days, then 50% of the wine matures in French oak barriques and 50% in cement tanks for 12 months, followed by a further 3 months in bottle before release. The wine is smooth, fruit-rich, and delicious, with supple, well-balanced tannins.

On the nose: Violets, black cherries, plum and earthy spice

On the palate: remarkable structure, soft thanks to the presence of refined tannins, with a long, warm finish. High acidity full body, toast, sage and black currants with hints of bitter almonds and aftertastes of chocolate
