Elegant and delectable, with tobacco, cherry aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a long and fruity finish. Will age, but why wait?

This well-known proprietary red wine made from Sergio Manetti's Sangioveto vineyards, is an exceptionally elegant, medium ruby-colored wine with kirsch and cherry aromas intermixed with leathery, cigar box-like spices. In the mouth, there is dry tannin, which is slightly intrusive, but the wine's fruit is clean. The overall impression is of a stylish, spicy, complex, medium-weight red for consuming over the next 4-5 years.
