Aromas of blue flower, dark berry and pressed powder lead the nose on this fragrant, juicy blend of Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 5% Mammolo, Canaiolo and Colorino. The round, savory palate delivers a core of ripe black cherry while notes of white pepper, anise and savory herb provide backup. It's balanced with nice acidity and supple tannins.
