This wine is a blend of 95% Sangiovese and 5% Canaiolo Nero, from different areas around Montepulciano. The must undergoes an initial pre-fermentation maceration at low temperatures followed by a brief maceration with the skins for greater color and tannin extraction. The wine is aged for six months in large Slavonian oak barrels and six months in bottle.

Tasting Notes

Radiant ruby red in color, lively aromas of cherries and raspberries complement undertones of cloves and grains of paradise. On the palate, the bright fruit flavors are complemented by full-bodied richness, well-integrated tannins, balanced fresh acidity, and a long luxurious finish.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with freshly made pasta, marinara sauces, salumi, rich meat ragu's and aged cheeses.
