This is half estate-grown Sangiovese but done in a Super Tuscan style with half the wine comprised of Cabernet and other Bordeaux reds. Soft, smooth, silky and lush, it's loaded with black fruits and new oak accents of toasted nuts, butter, caramel and chocolate. It's seductive and warm, forward and immediately appealing, yet built to age.
