Slightly rustic but still polished. The nose is toasty and full of bramble, spice and zesty red fruit. Rich and meaty in the mouth, where exotic but clear flavors of berries, toast and vanilla draw you in. Fairly lush in the long run, with commendable acidity and overall balance. A fine Tuscan red.

A big and rich Sangiovese, with loads of fruit and velvety tannins. Full-bodied and very long. Fresh and exciting. An excellent red. Best after 2004. 3,000 cases made. –JS

Wine maker notes
Following destemming, the berries are softly pressed and fermentation is completed on the skins at 75º - 79ºF. Malolactic fermentation occurs in spring. The wine is aged 9-14 months in barriques, small 225L barrels made of French oak, and further matures in the bottle for approximately nine months prior to release.
