Sangiovese (with a small amount of Canaiolo) is vinified in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks at a fermentation temperature of 28° C. It then spends time in steel tanks (30%), Sessile oak casks (50%) and barriques (20%). After blending, the wine is refined in French oak casks for two to three months.

Pairs well with pasta dishes, pizza and appetizers.

Wine EnthusiastEditors' Choice. Thyme, woodland berry and floral aromas mingle with a whiff of tilled earth. The taut linear palate evokes juicy plum, Morello cherry, underbrush and tobacco alongside polished tannins and vibrant acidity. Enjoy now for its pristine fruit and precision or hold for more complexity. Drink through 2031.
