Tasting Notes

This lively fruited blend of Grenache and Mourvedre makes a great everyday quaff. From vines growing happily along the cool Tuscan coast, ripe cherry aromas and flavors lead to rustic mineral tannins, finishing easily and cleanly. A wine that will place you under an olive tree overlooking the clear blue of the Mediterranean with a picnic of Italian meats and cheeses.

This wine is a perfect pair for summertime. It feels like a sundown beach party as the bright ruby liquid dances on your tongue.

Brunello di Montalcino, one of the most complex expressions of Sangiovese, has the best aging potential. Vino Nobile di Montepulciano shows the softer side of the grape, containing up to 20% of other varieties. Young Chianti often smells of fresh...
