An elegant and gorgeous Italian blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and
Cabernet. This is a balanced blend that really works well. It has the
lean but flavoursome Sangiovese character but given more tannin by the
Cabernet and rounded out with the fleshy Merlot body.
The wine required a bit of airing due to the very closed nose on
opening it and there was also a noticeable amount of sediment present.
Once poured from the decanter, it turned out to be extraordinary!
Perfumed and aromatic on the lovely nose with sweet liquorice and
caramel characteristics. On the palate delicate strawberry fruits with
excellent tannins. The texture is just right and it enhances the wines
flavour. A medium length finish asks for more- the bottle won't last
