Natalie's Score: 91/100

Savoury, supple and full-bodied with mouth-watering dark red fruit and smoke. Meaty and delicious with great richness and a return to the glass compulsion. Drink with meaty dishes. Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine

This nicely maturing wine blends 95% Sangiovese with 5% Canaiolo. Morello cherry, cedar, coal, baked plums, dried flowers and wood polish aromas layer their way from this dark red coloured wine. Ripe red and black stone fruits infuse the palate, also lead pencil, smoked meat, and fruitcake. Long complex flavours abound, tannins are tenacious with a firm grip and quite robust. Perfect in weight and texture, a true Classico. Score: Silver Medal (Outstanding) Source: International Wine & Spirit Competition, 2012
