Wine Spectator

About This Wine

100% Sangiovese.


In steel tanks with fermentation temperature control, daily soft pumping over. Maceration on the skins for 25 days.


36 months in slavonian Oak casks.


From a climactic point of view, 2017 can be defined as very similar to 2012 regarding the weather conditions, where these extremes have certainly become its strong point in terms of pleasantness, opulence, and readiness to drink. The springtime saw mild temperatures with little rainfall which resulted in an early bud burst and flowering. The early summer months were very hot with above-average temperatures and without rainfall. On one hand, this situation is ideal for plant health with the absence of plant disease; on the other hand, it is of great stress on the vines, which heartily withstood these conditions thanks to the abundant water reserves accumulated after the 2016 harvest, especially in the more clayey terrain of the Canalicchio Cru.


The blend favors wines of great minerality and sapidity, supported by excellent acidity ideal for long aging.

Tasting Notes


A wine of great personality, generous on the nose, enfolding and sensual.


A freshness in the mouth and its surprising balance making it a wine of great pleasure. Elegant and silky tannins give depth and vibration to the wine.

Wines of Tuscany

Tuscany, or Toscana in Italian, is one of the most iconic Italian regions for wine, scenery, and history. Located in central Italy along the west coast, its production of Sangiovese wines is world renowned. Some of Italy’s most famous subregions for Sangiovese such as Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano can be found here.

Tuscany makes both simple and top tier, age worthy Sangiovese wines. At entry-level you have a wine that is pizza and pasta friendly with bright and juicy red fruit. On the other hand, the highest quality representations of Sangiovese are remarkably complex with flavours ranging from sour cherry, balsamic, dried herbs and leather to fresh earth, dried flowers, anise and tobacco.

In evidence of the quality produced, Tuscany produces the third highest volume of DOC and DOCG quality wines in Italy, only trailing Piedmont, and Veneto. DOC and DOCG wines are the highest designation for Italian wines, while you will often see the IGT classification used to represent wines from Toscana that do not reach the standards for DOC/G.

There is another unofficial class of Tuscan wines called Super Tuscans which also command high prices. These wines are often made from international wine varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah, with or without Sangiovese.
