The blend is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with smaller parts Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese. The fruit comes from the family’s Tenuta Castiglioni in the township of Montespertoli. This is a medium to full-bodied red that shows dark consistency with aromas of plum, blackberry and Morello cherry. The wine is beautifully textured and soft with some warm-vintage ripeness on the finish.

This opens with red plum, underbrush and violet aromas. The easygoing palate offers black cherry and star anise flavors, with a touch of thyme and supple tannins. It's made to be drunk young, so enjoy soon.
