Tips by the Italian Sommelier
Bottle volume: 750 ml
Blended Info: Sangiovese 100%
Serving Temperature: 18°C. Below this temperature, the aromas will be restrained.
Type of Glasses: Large red wine glass
Decanting: Yes. For 1 hour
Time of opening: 1 hour before drinking
Tips: This wine requires a bit of attention when putting in the decanter as it may have some sediment in it. We recommend gently pouring the wine into the decanter and leave the sediment inside the bottle. (Perhaps you could use it to cook a nice risotto later!)
Deep ruby red colour, with a bouquet of black cherries and red berries. Good complexity, with balanced notes of vanilla and tobacco. Good tannic structure and bright acidity provide balance.
Ideal when paired with roasted red meats, stews, roast game and aged cheeses.
