Clay and limestone soils are the perfect conditions for this wine produced with 100% Sangiovese grapes. Made only in the best years, the wine is aged for 12-16 months in barriques of French oak and six months minimum of bottle age before release. The wine is certified organic.
Dark ruby colour with shades of purple. Very intense nose with bouquet of balsamic, flowery violet, iris, spices, red fruits, vanilla and cloves. On the palate, it reveals its great structure, dry and savoury supported by balanced acidity, warm and persistent with great ageing potential. Supple tannins become refinement of taste, soft and velvety by time.
