Notes

Equal parts of Teroldego, Sangiovese and Petit Verdot grapes. Assembled in Tuscany through great winemaking knowledge, made to entice the senses and enjoy the incredible land around the Mediterranean. Ruby red color and purple reflections with emanating aromas of blackberry, black currant, black cherry, and sweet cocoa, ending with balsamic and graphite highlights. Fresh and fruity taste, balanced between the softness of the alcohol and the composure of tannin supplied by the presence of Teroldego. Pairs well with Tuscan steak. Made only in steel.
