Sommelier's opinion

Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with the addition of a small percentage of Sangiovese. We expected a fairly young wine, instead we found a wine with evident tertiary notes, especially spicy, due to the wise use of wood by the company. It has the style and elegance of the great Bolgheri red wines, at a fairly low price. With a good structure, soft and rightly tannic, it is already very pleasant but will undergo a good evolution in the coming years.
