This wine is a blend of Sangiovese (60-65%) , Sagrantino and Merlot:Cab.
The wine is clear and filtered it is deep garnet in color and bright. The viscosity is medium indicating a medium alcohol content (13.5%).
On the nose notes of red berries , like sour cherries and strawberries , a light note of licorice. There is some sign of oak but not too recognizible .. the wine must have aged in oak barrels for a short period or in not new oak barrels.
The palate confirms the nose with smooth tannins and very well balanced acidity , the body is light and the finish is not very long 3-7 secs.
It is a good wine for everyday meals from meat, white meats and pasta or even pizza.
