Leafy underbrush aromas with whiffs of wet earth and blue flower lead the nose on this blend of 80% Sangiovese and 20% Canailo and Colorino. The one-dimensional palate offers black cherry, raspberry and a touch of cinnamon alongside astringent tannins. You can also detect the alcohol despite the modest percentage.
