Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Ruby, a blend of 90% Sangioveto, 5% Canaiolo and 5% Ciliegiolo grown in the Il Poggiale vineyard, and spent 18 months in French (1 year old). Red fruit aromas and floral spice. On the palate cherry and raspberry with notes of sweet earthy spice. Fine tannins on a medium+ finish, good balance with acidity yielding to a fresh ending with a zing of spice. Nice!
