Degustation notes

Dark purple colour, a concentrated nose of ripe fruit, supported by spicy notes, roasted and vanilla aromas recalling the barrel, with hints of stewed fruit, blackberries and prunes; classic in the mouth, nice body, powerful tannins, compact and well-balanced, full-bodied and concentrated, with a typical, slightly bitter finish; a beautiful Chianti, distinguished by its modernity.
