Tasting Notes

This fresh, unoaked, luminous Sangiovese blend has plums, juicy blueberries, and cherries on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied with lithe tannins, this is an easygoing, well-balanced quaffing red. A great idea for cured meats, appetizers, pasta with meat sauce, and, of course, pizza.

If you need a laid back red wine to go with your spaghetti and meatballs tonight, look no further. This superb Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo, Colorino, and Malvasia Nera delivers the goods: ripe red fruit, mild acidity and an ideal balance of tannin, juiciness, and jam. Harvested from small plots in the Scansano hills about 20 miles from the Tuscan coast, the grapes grow in a tranquil, unspoiled terroir allowing for the utmost attention to detail and quality. Sustainable practices at the vineyard minimize the environmental impact of its production as well, allowing you to effortlessly savor this supremely drinkable and food friendly wine guilt-free. Salute!

When you think of Tuscan wine, think of Sangiovese, the grape that is common to most great Tuscan reds (Vernaccia is the only white wine made here).
