Characteristics: ruby red colour tending towards garnet with age; the bouquet is wide, ethereal, composite with fragrances of violets, undergrowth and vanilla; it is dry in the mouth, warm and velvety, revealing a rich substance and excellent character.
Wine Spectator 92 points - This is distinctive, with an intense balsamic flavor backed by plum, cherry and spice notes. Sweet and ample for the vintage, covering the firm, underlying tannins. Everything is integrated and long. Best from 2015 through 2028.B.S. (Mar 27 2013)

Wine maker notes
Made from 100% Sangiovese Grosso grapes harvested from the Altesino, Montosoli and Velona vineyards in the first 3 weeks of October. After 25 days of maceration, the wine is transferred to large Slovenian barrels where it remains for 3 1/2 years prior to bottling. The ruby red color of this wine tends toward garnet with age. The bouquet displays ample aromas of violet and vanilla. Rich and velvety on the palate with balanced fruit, acidity, and tannin.
