A Brunello born in the estate vineyards that the zonation studies, which started in 1980, identified as the most suitable for Sangiovese. Elegant and balanced Brunello, with a good persistence, complex and sweet aromas and with an important but soft structure and a nice final acidity.
A well done Sangiovese with Merlot and Syrah. Good tannin, classic sangiovese freshness and cherry fruit, good acids and a touch of plushness from the merlot to give it a suave texture. Enjoy this wine with Tagliatelle alla Bolognese.
