Lifted aromas of fresh red berries and plum fruit with cedarwood, and gentle minty notes. The palate is ripe with layers of bramble and black cherry fruit balanced by savoury spice and tobacco characters. The finish is long and luxurious with supple tannins and a twist of sour cherry acidity.

An outstanding Tuscan winery that has pioneered key developments in the Chianti Classico region for the last 40 years. Based in Castelnuovo Berardenga, around 30 miles south-east of Florence and at the southern end of the Chianti Classico zone, this reputable estate includes 140 hectares of vineyards, a cellar, around 17000 olive trees, and a village with a prestigious hotel complex. Winemaker Leonardo Bellaccini crafts a portfolio of wines which is highly regarded and multi award-winning - classic expressions of high quality Sangiovese.

The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines are cultivated in sandy-silt soils typical of the Bolgheri region.

The grapes are carefully selected and undergo 18 days fermentation and maceration in stainless steel followed by 12 months maturation in French oak, and a further 3 months in bottle.

Drink with ravioli and meat ragu, braised duck breast or grilled lamb chops.
