Organoleptic characteristics: The wine-making process used to obtain this particular wine involves the use of hand-picked, fully ripe 80% Sangiovese of Tuscany with 15% Cabernet-Sauvignon and 5% Syrah grapes, which are
selected with the utmost care, then left to ferment into wine for long periods along with extensive soaking of their skins. Here we have a wine of excellent body; it is first left to mature for 6 months in little French oak kegs and then in bottles, allowing it to acquire a truly exceptional smoothness and harmony in its blend of taste. It is a dark, ruby red wine, with the slightest of garnet-coloured reflections; its bouquet is intense and composite, and extremely refined with predominant spicy notes; the taste of this wine is dry, warm, austere, elegant and harmonious, which is rounded off by a midly lingering and long-lasting aftertaste of toasted almonds and berry fruits.

of red meat, to game and to matured cheeses.
