Ruby-red tending towards garnet.
Elegant, with delicate scents of violets.
Well-balanced and dry, with good structure and a velvety texture.
Wine Enthusiast 90 points - Enticing aromas of violet, iris, wild berry, forest floor and cooking spice lead the nose of this savory blend of Sangiovese and Canaiolo. The sleek, easy-drinking palate doles out juicy black cherry, ripe plum, mocha and anise alongside polished tannins. Drink through 2016.

Spice and black plum aromas add a distinct note of dark chocolate with airing. Tart black-fruit and spicy oak flavors give way to warm tannins. Pair with roasted red meats and game.
It is a perfect accompaniment for the richly-flavored dishes of the traditional Chianti cuisine, as well as for grilled meats and mature cheeses.
