This wine from the Poggio alla Sughere vineyards in Magliano in Toscana is made from a blend of two grape varieties: Sangiovese (70%) and Merlot (30%). The wine is refined in small oak barrels for about 18 months and then for a further 12 months in the bottle. The nature of the Maremma territory - combining warmth and good rainfall - together with the two grape varieties used (Sangiovese and Merlot) ensure for this wine a full and intense bouquet with hints of fruit and vanilla. Taste is warm, intense, persistent and well-balanced. Splendido is a wine ideal for long ageing and is an ideal accompaniment for tasty dishes such as roast or braised beef and game, roast lamb and dishes with truffles and/or mushrooms.
