Tasting Notes
Cherry and strawberry flavors mesh with woodsy tobacco notes and a dense structure in this version. Just a bit compact on the finish now, but opens with air. Fresh and long on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2023. 5,000 cases made. –BS

General Info
Our main aim is to make terroir-driven wines which express the distinct character of our vineyards. We use indigenous yeasts when we can and pursue subtle wine management to help each wine find its natural path and preserve the characteristics of each grape lot.  We ferment and age each lot separately for our classic wines, and only decide on which blend we think will do a particular grape and vintage justice after the ageing process.

Starting with harvest 2013, our main vinification and ageing cellar is located at Lodola estate, which we acquired in 2012. Here we keep both the "botti," which are large barrels made of Slavonian oak and traditionally used for Sangiovese in Tuscany, and the smaller 225 liter casks called "barriques" which are made of French oak.
