A blend of Sangiovese and Merlot, this Super Tuscan has a lovely, fairly intense and complex nose of oak spice, red cherry, currant, cassis, clove, and spices. It is full-bodied with more currant, cassis, spice, and oak flavours supported by mouthwatering acids. Firm tannins are structured and grippy. Excellent length on the long, slightly warming, yet balanced finish. Best after 2025. Tasted Oct/2019.
