Tasting Notes

This classic Tuscan blend of Sangiovese (70%), Merlot (25%) and Cabernet Franc (5%) boasts a complex yet balanced mix of sweet and savoury.

The palate delivers bursts of kirsch, tea leaves, pepper, savoury spice and cherries that are capped off with a long tannin finish.



96 Points James Halliday , Wine Companion

“There is a complex array of cherry and smoky charcuterie aromas and flavours; assured winemaking has precisely gauged the contribution. ”



92+ Points Campbell Mattinson , The Wine Front

“Tannin aplenty. Meaty, herbal, streaky, captivating. Tastes of kirsch, tea leaves, shrubbery, pepper, spicy. Has enough fruit sweetness to carry the wild show of herbal/spicy/meaty savouriness. Boasts an extended finish. ”
