Winemaking Notes: The grapes were fermented in conical oak open vats for three weeks (Sangiovese and Cabernet) and 2 weeks (Syrah). The wine spent 22 months in 225-liter French oak barrels of which 30% were new and another 10 months in cask. The wine was bottled in July 2013 and released in July 2017.
Tasting Notes: The wine has great balance and complexity. Its bouquet showcases cherries, blackberries, spices and hints of balsamic. The tannins are fine. The cold vintage produced lively acidity. A savory palate finishes with remarkable length.
