Ratings and Reviews

Made from 90% Sangioveto, 5% Canaiolo, and 5% Ciliegiolo grown in the Il Poggiale vineyard, the grapes come from an elevation of almost 1,500 feet above sea level.  The combination of high elevation and low yields results in a wine that manages to simultaneously show both restraint and layered richness.  This classic red holds great aging capability.

Tasting Notes

This riserva is a brilliant ruby red color with garnet highlights. On the nose aromas of cherries, red plums, and currants are layered over notes of earth, rose petals, and leather.  On the palate, the wine is full-bodied showing excellent structure with firm, integrated tannins and plenty of spice on the long finish. 

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with grilled red meats, bordelaise sauces, Bistecca alla Fiorentina, and butter-poached veal shank

Supplier notes

Solid and beautiful with sliced strawberries and cherries, as well as floral and citrus character and hibiscus-tea undertones. Medium to full body and round, creamy tannins. So delicious. Drink or hold.
