A ready-to-drink red wine produced only in the best years, a blend of Sangiovese (80%) of the grapes destined for Brunello, plus 20% Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Deep ruby in colour, it is full-bodied but less demanding. The nose is rich in notes of forest and red fruits, from raspberry to cherry. On the palate it is soft, elegant and quite persistent. It goes well with Tuscan crostini, Cinta Senese cold cuts, first courses with meat sauce and stews.
