On the nose: A subtle nose with strong hints of red berry fruit and light spicy, aromatic notes from 12 months in oak barrels.

On the palate: The palate is very soft, sweet and pleasantly salty with a ingering finish and fruity aftertaste.

92 points "New Top Super Tuscan Reds", James Suckling: "Blackberry, rosemary, currants and minerals on the nose. Full body, with velvety and chewy tannins. Delicious fruit. Harmonious and subtle."

Pair with pizza, sausages, game birds, lamb and grilled meats and vegetables.
