100% BBS11 Sangiovese clone – the clone developed generations ago by the Biondi Santi family to produce forward, yet long aging, well-structured wines and the backbone to the family’s Brunello’s.
The wine has a brilliant ruby red colour with violet tones. The nose is fresh, with red cherry, dried herbs, floral notes of sweet violets, a mild oakiness with a balsamic spiciness coming through. The palate shows purity of fruit, layers of ripe, sour cherry, dried herbs, some pepper, with a long, lingering finish. This is a fine, savoury wine which is drinking well now but will reward patient cellaring, as the estate suggests it will age gracefully for 25 years.
Pair with various meats and roasts as well as saltwater fish
