Tasting Notes

This is a magnificently elegant and sumptuous Merlot. Carefully crafted from the fruit of some of the best vineyards on the estate in Greve in Chianti, it is rich and deep with silky textures. Refined cassis and plum fruit characters are balanced by an elegant mineral structure with a touch of toasty oak to enhance complexity. This is a truly exceptional wine and it will age for at least twenty years.

Reviews & Scores

100% Merlot. Mid crimson. Classy Merlot nose with chalky notes and hint of tobacco. Almost a little austere for a Tuscan Merlot with sappy acidity and powdery tannins. Distinct and herbal rather than richly fruity. Cool-year impact makes this an elegant wine. (WS) 14%
