A Tuscan-inspired blend, the Sinistra is 70% Sangiovese, 15% Nebbiolo and 15% Barbera. It's a smoothly aromatic red, showing good ruby color, scents rich with milk chocolate, red fruits, hints of black pepper and black tea. Smoothly blended wine, it's showing its young fruit off to best advantage, so drink up.
