The perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness, Sangiovese is among Italy's elite red grape varieties and is responsible for the best red wines of?Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of?Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di?Montepulciano?and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di?Montalcino
This blend of Merlot and Sangiovese opens with aromas of violet, black plum, cedar and a whiff of bay leaf. On the concentrated palate, lively acidity lifts black cherry jam, licorice and mocha alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2022.
