Description of the wine: this wine comes from one of the hottest and driest season in history to demonstrate the generous and fearless nature of Sangiovese and the people of Tuscany, able to produce excellent wines even in particular climatic conditions. A careful work of aging in the cellar allowed to smooth and chisel this wine, as a sculptor would do with a block of marble. The color is garnet, the intense scents embrace different sensations, from raspberry to balsamic notes, to finish with roasting chocolate. On the palate, it is warm, powerful, structured, with some harshness that denotes its youth and at the same time the talent of a wine that can refine for a long time in bottle. To better express the qualities of this wine we recommend a serving temperature of 18-20° C.
