Blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Highly aromatic with lovely red cherry, cinnamon, and oak spice. The medium-full bodied palate offers nicely balanced aroma replays with savoury touches supported by bright acidity. It's a touch warm, but concentrated fruit holds it up well. Excellent finish length. Firm tannins need 3-4 years to settle down. Drink by 2030. Tasted Oct/2018.
