It was fermented in stainless steel vats and left on the skins for 18-25 days, then matured for 18 months in French oak tonneaux. 1,650 cases produced.

Critical Praise

(for 2019) “This is a delicious sangiovese and merlot blend from a leading Brunello producer. It shows fairly deep, youthful colour and fragrant ripe, complex and well integrated nose of almost jammy blackberry, red cherry fruit, fine herbs, spice and vanillin. It is medium weight, open-knit, almost plush and refined with fine tannin. The length is very good to excellent. Tasted October 2022.” - 91 points, David Lawrason,

(for 2019) “A juicy and fruity red with lots of blackberry and cherry character. Hints of vanilla, too. Medium body, round tannins and a fruity finish. A little one-dimensional. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.” - 90 points, James Suckling, August 8, 2022.
