harvest note

Even in Tuscany, summer 2014 was cooler compared to the average of the last 10 years. This condition resulted in wines slightly less “Mediterranean” with slightly higher acid and fresh and highly floral aromas.

tasting note

Ruby red with violet hues. Notes of red berries and black fruit as well as floral notes of violet and spice. In the mouth, the wine is balanced with tannins, structure and a long, elegant finish.
