Ratings

Wine Enthusiast 89 pts - Fresh aromas of red berry, violet and aromatic herb lead the nose of this blend of 80% Sangiovese, 15% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The vibrant palate delivers wild cherry, crushed raspberry, white pepper and a hint of coffee alongside bright acidity and silky tannins. Drink through 2017.
