Tasting Notes

An intensely favoured and complex wine which combines the elegance of the Chianti region with the darker, more sumptuous flavours of the coastal Maremma vineyards. A bouquet of bright red cherries with deeper damson and blackberry fruit characters mingles with attractive violet and rose petal notes. The palate is multi-layered and richly flavoured with plenty of ripe forest fruit characters balanced by a refined structure and a lovely energetic freshness which runs through to the finish. Hints of spice and a mineral edge add complexity and gives excellent definition - This wine will be approachable from release but will mature well for the next five or more years.

Reviews & Scores

Adventurous blend of Cabernet Franc, Syrah and Merlot. Half of the grapes come from the estate’s Maremma holding, the other from Greve-in-Chianti. Fermented by indigenous yeast in large oak cask and underwent MLF and ageing in barrique of which 20% was new for 16 months. After that the wine is racked off and aged for a further six months in cement tank.
Mid crimson and just a little lacklustre. Hints of paprika, bramble fruit and oak polish. Distinct yet round. Elegant, succulent fruit with a pinch of drying tannins on the finish. Easy drinking yet classy. Great balance. (WS) 14%

Consistent and well-balanced in the mouth, with fine, elegant...
