Description of the wine: the 2016 vintage has been characterised by warm but not torrid summer, this allowed the grape to reach a perfect maturity and Sangiovese is a demanding vine. The favorable vintage and a careful work of refinement in the cellar, have produced this wine that espresse at best the great vocation of the Tuscan land to give noble and precious wines. The color is garnet red, the perfumes are intense and range from the notes of tea, to the sweet tobacco, to the resin. In the mout is powerfull, enveloping, not lacking in mild tartness typical of the Sangiovese that soon fades in to a harmonious tannic texture. This wine gives great emotions to all that search for a long-lived and never trivial wine: it is true expression of a unique land, the Tuscany.
