Underbrush, spice and plum aromas lead the nose on this blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot. The smooth palate delivers a core of juicy black cherry accented with licorice and espresso. Polished and round, this is already drinking well, but can age at least a few more years.
