From Rocca delle Macie vineyards in the Maremma coastal district of southeastern Tuscany.
Carefully selected ripe grapes are harvested by hand. The two grape varieties are separately fermented at carefully controlled temperatures to preserve color and freshness of fruit flavors and aromatics. 15% of the Sangiovese is aged in French oak barriques for a period of six months. The two varieties are then blended and bottled for release.
Color: Brilliant ruby red
Bouquet: Intense red fruit aromas of ripe cherry, blackberry and raspberry
Taste: A succulent, supple well-structured palate with a silky smooth finish
Very versatile; will complement red meats, hearty, robust vegetarian dishes, pastas and risottos with flavorful sauces. May also be served on its own, by the glass, as a reception wine. - Winery
Candied cherry, boysenberry and violet flavors vie for attention, offset by stiff tannins. Comes together with some air, but needs time. 33,300 cases made. –BS - Wine Spectator Magazine 89 Points
Fruity and easygoing, this blend of 60% Sangiovese and 40% Syrah doles out crushed black cherry, blackberry, spiced blueberry, white pepper and clove. Supple tannins support the juicy flavors and give it a smooth texture. Drink now. - K.O. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 88 Points
