I want to wear the scent of this wine. Very feminine and soft. Really the perfect bottle for just about any occasion. One of my new favorites. #tuscantable

A lot of horse blanket on the nose and on first taste. Let it sot for about 45 minutes and this opened up beautifully. Still some horse blanket funk lingering behind bright fruit, nice acid, and light tannins to give good depth.

2012. Can't seem to really get into Tuscan blends for the last few years but I do like the personality of this wine.
