The fruit comes from the hilly provinces of Arezzo and Siena in the Chianti region of Tuscany, grown in layers of clay, lime and schist. After handpicking, grapes are brought to the winery for a traditional vinification that includes pumping over at least four times a day. Thirty percent is aged in 793 - 1321 gallon oak vats prior to bottling.

Harvest Note
A cold and rainy winter preceded an irregular spring followed by exceptionally hot, dry summer weather, creating small bunches of Sangiovese, so yields were down across the region – exacerbated by several violent August hailstorms – although concentration levels are very good.
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.
Food Pairing
Perfect with hard cheeses, pizza, pasta dishes or grilled meats.
