The carachteristics of this wine are its typical deep ruby colour, vinous bouquet and dry harmonic taste. It is produced from only the best Sangiovese and Montepulciano grapes, and mellowed in oak barrels. It is a wine which is at its best served at room temperature to accompany all kinds of roast meat and game. Tasting Notes: Very intense ruby colour with slight grainy tones. Rich and persistent nose with a sophisticated, berry-scented bouquet revealing hints of almond extract, mint, and earth. Fresh and fruity palate that is well-structured with soft tannins, mellowed in French oak.
