A blend of 60% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, it opens with aromas that suggest underbrush, black berries and espresso. The soft palate delivers fleshy black cherry accented with notes of thyme and mint alongside round tannins. Not much complexity but it's savory and already accessible so enjoy soon.
