Tasting Notes

Under new ownership, the 2015 has been completely transformed, relative to earlier vintages. Famed enologist, Franco Bernabei has decided to cut yields in half, employ new barrique in the wine’s maturation, and determined that the Sangiovese should represent 90% of the blend, rather than 80% as in earlier versions of this wine.

The wine is an intense ruby colour with garnet reflections at the rim. The bouquet evokes ripe cherry and earth notes with hints of tobacco and subtle floral tones. The palate is firm and intense with dark berry fruit and forest floor lingering on the long finish.

Food Pairings

Grilled beef or lamb, pasta with Bolognese sauce, mushroom lasagna, savoury cheeses (pecorino)

Third Party Reviews

Aromas of forest floor, roasted coffee bean, new leather and camphor meld with violet and wild berry. Soft and full bodied, the palate provides cherry marinated in spirits, prune, espresso and licorice alongside velvety tannins. Score 91, Wine Enthusiast, March 2019
