Product Description

This blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Canaiolo Nero, 3% Malvasia and 2% Trebbiano is named for the ancient, picturesque villages that line the Elsa River: Monte Reggiani, Colle, San Gimignano and Certaldo. Also along the Elsa are the selected vineyards that produce the grapes. The vineyards line the river on well-exposed hillsides at 350-400 meters elevation, with a blend of alberese, marl and limestone soils. The wine shows intense, fragrant and elegant aromas of blackberries and raspberries, with violet and Florentine iris notes. On the palate, the spicy flavors are full, harmonious and slightly rustic, with notes of toasted almonds and wild berries. The wine has intense, fragrant and elegant aromas of blackberries and raspberries, with violet and Florentine iris notes.
