A full bodied Tuscan red, as rich and vibrant as the land of its origin. Full of character and yet elegant, this is a smooth, velvet wine to perfect any occasion.
Following the harvest, this wine spends 12 months in 4 different oak barrels which give distinct flavours. Once blended, the wine spends a further 3 months in the bottle and the final result is a complex and refined wine.
The production of this wine is limited to a few thousand bottles per year. The vineyard is about 20 years old (check), restored with love and care in the past few years, on a small parcel in the middle of the wilderness of Villa Lena.
Drink as you desire, best enjoyed with friends!

The terroir has ancient history - the soil is a former seabed c. 2-3 millions years old, as shown by the fossilised shells and corals mixed with the earth. Gray clay and sandy layers alternate in the soil profile giving a wonderful complexity to the wine. Acidity 5.45, pH 3.4
The vines are planted on the Western slope of one of the small vineyard parcels, absorbing the hot afternoon sun and filling the grapes with juice and sugar to make the perfect Sangiovese blend. Acidity 5.45, pH 3.4
Serve at 8-18 degrees in a transparent crystal stem glass. The bottles should be laid horizontally in a cool, dark, humid wine-cellar.
