Sangiovese in its natural state. It is considered to be the younger brother of Brunello. It is aged for one year in 20 hl Slavonian oak barrels and unites the imposing structure of Brunello with the freshness and vivacity of a young wine. It should be drunk young, although it does last with ageing. It shows an intense ruby red colour and reveals all its exuberance with notes of red fruit and blackberry on the nose. On the palate, it is pleasing and well-orchestrated with good length and without aggressive tannins.
