Blend of 80% Sangiovese with 20% Merlot & Colorino, the highly aromatic nose offers sweet spice, red cherry, floral, and some dried cherry notes, all of which come through very nicely on the medium-full bodied, structured palate. It's with slightly chalky tannins, while the long, balanced and very satisfying finish has excellent length. Tasted Nov/2021.
