Tasting notes

Some of our earliest Sangioveses were blended with just a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon.  We revisited this ‘Super Tuscan’ tradition in 2005 and struck a chord.  A 50/50 blend brought out the best of both worlds.  The tannin structure of the Cab balanced perfectly with the bright acidity of Sangiovese and the “Bello Rosso” was born.  A nose of dried strawberries and cranberries with accents of mint reveals cassis, cinnamon and dusty raspberry on the palate.  Lush tannins and bracing acidity frame the lengthy finish.
