Highly impressed with this wine! Blend of Sangiovese and Merlot grapes. Like a baby super Tuscan, wonderful oak and cherry hints with medium tannins dancing on the palate.

Good, not great. not much taste, kind of bland actually, but to be expected with a blend I guess.

Ruby colored. Very aromatic fruity aroma with some gravel or earth notes. Maybe strawberry or raspberry. Light bodied. Medium low tannins. Medium low acidity. Okay flavors - kind of flat or meh. Overall good but wouldn’t go out of way to buy again.
