Here's a blend of 65% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 15% Sagrantino that features aromas of toasted oak, leafy underbrush and freshly ground black pepper. The palate offers up dried black cherry, espresso, roasted coffee bean, graphite and licorice alongside drying tannins. It's evolving quickly so enjoy soon.
