One is immediately struck by the warmth of the Sangiovese flavours – we are in Southern Tuscany, after all. But this is tempered with freshness, the proximity to the cooling Mediterranean breezes proving, once again, to be crucial. Note that there are small amounts of Cabernet and Grenache to add some structure and breadth.
Matthew Jukes, Wine Journalist:
"Made from Sangiovese with a small percentage (3%) of Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache, for a touch of intrigue, the bulk of the flavour-grunt here comes from a vineyard planted in the seventies while the top notes and florals are derived from younger vines. With an all-encompassing flavour of deep blackberry tones dotted with wild herbs and brief flashes of liquorice, this is an immensely satisfying Tuscan red with more flair and élan than a wagon-load of Chiantis. What I find so attractive about this wine is the depth and length of flavour which is that of a £50 not a sub-£20 number!"
