TASTING NOTES

Only made during the best years, it is the result of careful selection of Sangiovese grapes from a single vineyard “the Don Vincenzo vineyard”. It is the wine that the producer wanted to dedicate to his father, Vincenzo, whose profile appears on the label in perspective opposite to the profile of his first male grandson, who bears his own name. The past generation is indissolubly linked to the future generation through the present one, symbolized on the label by Giovanni Battista signature.

This wine is an intense ruby red with garnet reflections, it is a wine of great personality, with a variegated and persuasive bouquet, it shows notes of dark berries, purple plum, balsamic and spicy notes, also present are sweet tobacco, cocoa and toasted coffee. Considered a very complex wine that requires attention, it has an elegant and decisive input with an enveloping development supported by a low acidity that harmonizes with a dense tannic texture that gives a very persistent, almost sweet finish. Only 3,300 bottles produced.
