Produced only in top vintages, the “Riserva” is one of the most representative wines of the winery and best expresses the varietal characteristics of Sangiovese.
Intense ruby colour, bright, with light garnet reflections. The nose gives off aromas of red ripe fruits, followed bu hints of tobacco, black pepper and sweet woods, that become more complex with maturity. At first binding and full, the tannins blend in well with the fruity component. Long lasting taste, which expresses itself in excellent depth.
