A classically crafted blend of organically farmed Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo and Colorino, this opens with alluring aromas of red berry, pressed violet, dark cooking spice and leather. The savory, linear palate doles out juicy Morello cherry, black raspberry, black pepper, grilled herb and tobacco. It's fresh and well balanced, with firm, polished tannins.
