Made predominantly with Cabernet Sauvignon with the addition of a small percentage of Sangiovese, this offers aromas of dark-skinned berry, dried Mediterranean herb and cedar. The bold but elegantly structured palate doles out black-currant jam, black plum, licorice and white pepper alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink 2020–2027.
