A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% other red grapes. Smooth and medium- to full-bdoied. Needs food and would be very versatile with a variety of dishes.

Sangiovese food pairings: pasta served with sauce, as well as with meat stuffings, risotto with mushrooms, spiced red meat, roast pork cooked in the tuscan tradition and truffled half-mature cheese..

Reviews and Ratings

Cat rated this wine as 79/100
A fine, brilliant and intense ruby red color. A good complexity of aromas: very fruity with cherry, red berries and plum. The palate is very well balanced, with round and persistent tannins and a good freshness, warm and fruity with cherry and sweet berries. A long and intense finish.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
