Spicy notes such as ginger, orange zest, anise and a hint of vanilla are well integrated in a wealth of black berries.


Elegant, fresh and juicy palate dominated by dark cherries into a frame of round tannins. Generous finish with persistent black pepper, liquorice, black fruit flavours.

Growing Conditions

Castelnuovo Berardenga

The vineyard is situated at an altitude of 350 m a.s.l., with a south-west exposure on a clayey rocky and, consequently, well-drained soil. Vines were planted in 1998, cordon trained and spur pruned, with a vine density of 4.200 plants per ha.


The grapes are hand harvested and selected in the vineyards.


The clusters, carried in small bins, are sorted again on a sorting table before going into the de-stemmer. Maceration lasts for about 15 days, with frequent pump-over procedures, followed by délestage. Racking and malolactic fermentation ensue.


18 months in 10-20 hl French oak barrels for the Sangiovese, 18 months in barriques for the Cabernet and Merlot, 6 months in bottle.


Bright ruby colour with purple hues.

Food Pairing

Rich, flavourful dishes based on red sauce and red meat, game, stews, truffles and mature cheeses.
