Intense underbrush aromas, black berries and violet lead the nose on this delicious blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 5% Ciliegiolo. The juicy palate offers a core of ripe black cherry accented with notes of tobacco, black pepper and orange peel; minerality and a hint of coffee bean add depth. It's is an incredible value.
