Ruby red tending to garnet in color. Fine, with delicate hints of violets. Balanced, dry, well-structured and velvety fabric. Canaiolo and Sangiovese
The grapes are harvested by hand, are vinified with great care by the traditional method of fermentation in the presence of skins to enhance the strong personality afforded by the territory of Radda in Chianti. After malolactic fermentation is aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months.
Silky, with cherry and strawberry flavors, this red is balanced and elegant. The structure is vibrant and shepherds the fruit and mineral notes to a lingering aftertaste. Drink now through 2018. -BS, Wine Spectator, Score: 89
