Sangiovese in its natural state. It is considered
to be the younger brother of Brunello. It is aged for one year in 20 hl
Slavonian oak barrels and unites the imposing structure of Brunello
with the freshness and vivacity of a young wine. It should be drunk
young, although it does last with ageing. It shows an intense ruby red
colour and reveals all its exuberance with notes of red fruit and
blackberry on the nose. On the palate, it is pleasing and
well-orchestrated with good length and without aggressive tannins.
