The result of thirty years' research and experience. Selected from choice, historical vineyard sites in Tuscany, ranging from the heart of Chianti Classico to Maremma, on the coast. They are orchestrated by Neil Empson and Franco Bernabei, who bring to bear more than thirty years' research and experience in the region. Vines are over 25 years old. Élevage is 14 months in Allier oak barrique (70% new), followed by six months' bottle age before release. Deep ruby red in color, with purple reflections. Its intense, persistent bouquet of violets, cherries and red berry fruit shows subtle, elegant notes of vanilla and toasted wood, minerally nuances and hints of leather, chocolate, black pepper, and cinnamon...an exquisite palate of aromas confirmed on the full, lush, flavorful palate characterized by sweet mellow tannins and velvet texture. Long, lingering finish.
