Notes of cinnamon, warm spicy mulberry, and graphite. Poised tannins wrap around the fruit with a stylish lift on the finish. The 2019 is terrifically charming – a high-wire balancing act between aristocratic poise and earthy soul.
70% Cabernet and 30% Sangiovese blend. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature and maceration lasts for about 12 days for both the Cabernet Sauvignon to the Sangiovese. It is then aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels and for a further three months in the bottle.
FROM THE PRESS
“Made with 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Sangiovese, this has enticing aromas of cassis, black tea, violet and wild herbs. Savory and elegantly structured, the medium-bodied palate shows ripe blackberry, star anise and a hint of coffee bean framed in lithe, polished tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Drink through 2025. 92 points.”Kerin O'Keefe, Winemag.com
