In the mouth, the tastes are in perfect symphony with the aromas: the juicy acidity and its full body.
pure tannins of the fruit and the exuberance of the alcohol marry in a fine duet which then returns to a finale of clear and persistent red fruits.

Sangiovese: One of the oldest italian varieties (blood of Jupiter/sangue di Giove), grown also in Etruscan times. It is the most diffusely planted red grape in Italy, above all in Tuscany, Umbria, and Emilia Romagna. There are many types of Sangiovese, but the two main divisions are: Sangiovese Grosso, the more prized is also less planted, almost entirely in the zone of Montalcino (SI), where it is called Prugnolo Gentile; Sangiovese Piccolo is the more common and is known by various synonyms depending on the zone amongst which is Morellino of Scansano. It is known for wines of intense ruby red color, tannins, good body, harmony and a nice bitterness: it shows fruity aromas when young but after aging they become notably more refined. Often blended with other wines to add color, harmony and aromas.
Montepulciano: The origin of this variety of “black” berries has always been uncertain, it is often confused with Sangiovese, probably because of the existence of the Tuscan town of the same name. Those who have studied it, like Molon (1906) classified it as a Sangioveti. Today it is certain the 2 varieties have nothing in common. It is most commonly cultivated in Abruzzo, Le Marche and other central/south Adriatic regions.
It has many names, such as Montepulcian of Abruzzo, Primaticcio, Cordisco etc. Today, thanks to the excellent work of some producers and winemakers, Montepulciano has risen to become one of the red wines of highest quality. Montepulciano prefers a hot, dry climate with a sun drenched exposition to guarantee a good and regular maturation of the grapes. When it is vinified by itself, the wine is guaranteed to be of high quality, good for aging while at the same time improving wines of other varieties when blended and can provide aromas similar to some bordeaux wines.
Cabernet Sauvignon: A variety from Bordeaux in the zones of Medoc and Graves, it is the variety most renowned in the world for wines of great quality and longevity. It is often blended with Cabernet Franc and Merlot, other varieties well known from Bordeaux. In Italy there are many versions, both in pure form and blends with other red varieties. It has a great capacity to adapt to many climatic conditions and techniques of vinification, while maintaining it well known characteristics and expressing its “terroir”. It is capable of producing a wine of intense color, rich in tannins and aromatic substances, and a long aging potential thanks to its great structure. It is well suited for long macerations and aging in wood barrels, especially of french oak which allow the wine in time to express complex, charming bouquets.
