Tasting notes
AppearanceIntense ruby red Nose Intense bouquet of mature red berries fruits Palate Well-balanced with good structure and nice length with fruity flavours

93 Pts, Vinous / Antonio Galloni
Dark bright red. Amarone-like opulence on the nose and in the mouth, with a raisiny nuance to the ripe, soft red cherry, sweet spice and herb aromas and flavors. So velvety and opulent I would have tasted it in Veneto had I tasted it blind, but itís so well balanced and smooth that itís pretty irresistible. Finishes long, with lush, smooth tannins and a hint of residual sweetness. I really like this wine because, for all its showy sweetness and opulence, it manages to retain a graceful quality without going over the top. Amarone lovers will score it even higher than I have.

Wine maker notes
2012. This blend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a single-vineyard site called Rompicollo, which benefits from a Southern exposure, ample sunlight, and a volcanic soil rich in tufo rock. Offering an intense bouquet of ripe red cherries and other mature red fruits, the wine is well-balanced with good structure and length.

Perfect with pastas with red meat sauces, white meats, and fresh cheeses.

Food pairing
Italian pasta with red meat sauce, white meats, fresh cheeses
