Rating: 92 from Falstaff Wine Guide

Beating heart of Mediterranean intensity in a fruity and velvety dialectic game between Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes ripened under the sun of the Maremma. In the intense and brilliant purple glass there are scents of violets and black cherries with a sweet note of cinnamon which makes the intensity of the blueberry jam delicious. The maturity of the forest fruits is refreshed on the palate by agile and defined tannins, and harmonious notes of fine herbs with myrtle and laurel, giving a pleasant vitality.
