The Wine

A blend of 82'%' Sangiovese, '15%' Canaiolo and 3'%' Syrah with maturation taking place in large oak barrels for approximately 12 months. Besides a healthy dose of Canaiolo Nero, proprietor Paolo De Marchi blends in a dash of Syrah to give backbone, especially in lighter vintages - he believes it to be less invasive than other international varieties. Fragrantly expressive, enticing notes of aromatic herbs, rose, fennel, clove and fresh forest floor greet the nose. While wonderfully medium in weight, this packs a lot in, especially tangy blackcurrant. Chalky tannins are subtly assertive and will carry the wine through the midterm. Drinking window 2022-2030. Decanter 92/100
