This blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Sagrantino is redolent with aromas of ripe black fruit and blue flower, with a whiff of leather. The palate delivers a savory wild cherry flavor, punctuated with white pepper, cinnamon and clove spice. Bracing yet fine tannins are balanced by fresh acidity. Drink 2015–2020.
