Good depth of ruby with a dark core and youthful rim, the 2008 has a minty, eucalyptus note which offsets the pure, lightly spiced red berry fruit of the Sangiovese.

The Syrah adds a touch of colour and a ripe, roundness to the palate which blends perfectly with the judiciously judged oak.

Plenty of ripe tannins and a lift on the finish.

80% Sangiovese, 15% Canaiolo, 5% Syrah/Shiraz.
