This blend of 90% Sangiovese, 5% Malvasia Nera, and 5% Canaiolo is fresh and perfumed with red cherry, spice, cinnamon, and clove aromas. It is medium-bodied with tight, chalky tannins and nice aroma replays on the flavour profile. Acids are very good, while the finish is long and chalky. Will be better in 2-3 years. Tasted Oct/2019.
