Description

Made from 100% Sangiovese grown in the Ramitello and Martarosa vineyards and hand-harvested in October, this wine is aged in stainless steel and large oak barrels for six months to achieve greater smoothness and softness while preserving the supple fruit-forward characteristics of Sangiovese.

Bright red in color, aromas of violets and red berries complement undertones of leather and anise.  On the palate, this wine is dry and mellow with smooth tannins that make for a crowd-pleasing, easy-to-drink red wine. 

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a deeply primary red wine that is teeming with vibrant fruit and dark intensity. The wine is a bit edgy and raw, and you are treated to a full dose of that scorching hot 2017 summer sunshine. Blackberry, prune and plum emerge from the bouquet. This is a terrific entry-level red that shows soft tannins and a generous, succulent quality of fruit. It ages in botte grande for six months. Some 60,000 bottles were made.
