2012 Vintage report:
The 2012 growing season was defined by high temperatures and limited rainfall during the summer months, and the dry climate greatly facilitated the healthy ripening of Sangiovese grapes. The warmth and sunlight of 2012 bequeathed us with a vintage of extraordinarily powerful and rich wines balanced by great minerality.

The wine, intensely ruby red, presents itself with a rich bouquet that ranges from red to black fruits such as plums, currants, blackberries accompanied by spicy notes that end with toasted notes of coffee and tobacco. In the mouth, the wine is warm and soft and its fine, enveloping tannins are well-balance. The finish is long and persistent with a slight fruitiness.
