Region: Italy / Tuscany
Grapes: Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah

Grapes are grown in the Chianti and Maremma regions according to the soil type best suited to each grape variety. Chianti Classico soils, with their higher clay content, are well suited to Sangiovese, while Maremma’s unique climate and sandy soils are optimal for Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The grapes are carefully blended by Ambrogio e Giovanni Folonari in Greve, Chianti, to balance the wine’s characters of earthiness and acidity. The wine was fermented and aged in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to enhance the fruit aromas.

This gutsy Tuscan red is made by a family with centuries of winemaking tradition, but its spice and taste is distinctively modern Italian.
