Big. Rich. Stiffly structured. Deep ruby red. Round dark fruit with bramble and forest influence. Mint and eucalyptus. Purposely built for the masses without a sense of place. A disappointing yet serviceable entry to a great producer.

Delicious Tuscan red. Half sangio half cab/merlot (if I remember correctly). Lots of leathery red fruits and dark berries, with acidity to stand up to the oldest family meatball and tomato sauce recipes.

Nice wine. I love their brunello big bro! But this wine has a nice lighter body yet full flavor. Would buy again.

Dry when you first open, but, when you wait a few minutes the dryness goes away and becomes a really tasty wine.
