This blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of black berries, cedar and spice with a hint of meat juices. The palate delivers dense black cherry and black berry flavors along with vanilla, espresso and chocolate notes. It's ripe, concentrated and velvety but it also lacks freshness and energy.
