Tasting Notes

Why ‘Riserva del Don’? In Southern Italy, from whence the family originated, tradition held that the “Don” (property owner) was to be gifted a small, but premium part of each vintage.

This Riserva is only produced in the finest vintages (none was made in 1992, 2002, 2005, 2010, 2013 or 2014) from 100% Sangiovese grapes grown on the family estate. The Sangiovese is aged 24 months in a selection of French and Slavonian oak barrels.

Red berry fruit along with floral rose character, pungent balsam and well delineated black pepper. Maturation in oak has mellowed the exuberance of the tannins, but they are still impressive and serve to extend the progression on the palate. Further bottle aging will serve to bring out the fine qualities of the vintage.

Food Pairings

Pairs with poultry, white meats, red meats, rich pasta dishes and hard yellow cheeses.
