A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and petit verdot. Needs two or three years to start coming together, but already gorgeous to taste. collapse

Blackberry, plum and dark currant emerge from the bouquet. The harvest required that much of the fruit for this wine come from vineyards in Bibbona (outside the Bolgheri appellation), and that's why this wine is classified as a Toscana IGT. The results are well-balanced, fragrant and absolutely seamless. Some 20,000 bottles were made. collapse
