Made with 70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this offers alluring aromas of baked plum, truffle, culinary spice and a whiff of new leather. The elegant, vibrant palate doles out ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and cinnamon while taut, refined tannins provide structure and finesse. It's balanced, with bright acidity. Drink through 2024.
