Country: Italy, Tuscany
Tasting Notes: Deep, vibrant ruby, giving typical violets aromatics with cherries and red berry fruits, lifted by a grace note of minerality. Assertive on entry, with savoury freshness to the fore mid palate, before the delicious finale reprises fragrant notes of balsam-wreathed fruitiness.
Varietal: Blend of Sangiovese and other varietals
Pairing: Ideal with traditional Tuscan cooking, especially starters of cold meats and “bruschetta” toasted bread with spreads of all kinds, or charcoal-grilled pork drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.
