Blend of grapes: Sangiovese in purity
Wine alcohol content: 13 % by vol.
Organoleptic notes: with a ruby red color it gives to the nose notes of red berry fruit, especially of cherry with feeble scents of sweet violet and jasmine. On the taste palate it is soft, round and well-balanced; medium-bodied with a good acidity.
Pairing: excellent partner of traditional Florentine steak and of all the grilled preparations, it even vigorously accompanies fish dishes like spiced fish soup and stockfish with sauce.
