Half Sangiovese and half Cabernet Sauvignon, the Bello Rosso marries immediate appeal with the structure for some additional years of aging. Boysenberry and vivid black-cherry flavors show excellent definition and penetration, and are highlighted with barrel accents of clove and sweet spices. Over many hours this wine continued to improve and expand.
