"Black cherry, tobacco and black pepper notes mingle in this firm red, bolstered by integrated tannins, with a long
finish. A touch astringent now, but this should come together soon. Sangiovese and Merlot."
The wine opens with a ruby red color with violet tinges. It has a full and intense fragrance with hints of red fruit which bring to mind cherries and raspberries. On the palate the wine is smooth and well-balanced. The finish is characterized by gentle tannins and the persistent flavor of the grapes which make is so delicious and easy to drink.
