Tasting Notes

The voice of a single vineyard, 10 hectares in the family hills of San Casciano in Val di Pesa, a century-old estate where Sangiovese grapes have unique strength and precision. The soul of this wine is in the details, with a rough character in a precise texture that widens in complexity with the evolution. Intense aromas vibrating in fragrant notes of dark cherries and plums, violets and dried roses, liquorice powder and myrtle leaf, with a fresh touch of fine spices. The palate is powerful and direct, with a crescendo in the mouth: a dry and warm body without excess of tannins, like a stretching muscle, defines a full and harmonious development.
