This blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Merlot has a medium-high intensity nose that is maturing with dried cherry, orange, dark fruits, and sweet spice aromas and flavours supported by very good acidity. There's a touch of warmth on the mid-palate, but it's still well-balanced. Maturing tannins are smooth and refined, while the flavour replays linger on the very good length finish. Tasted May 2022.
