From the same vineyard planted over Tufo in Pitigliano, this is roughly half Sangiovese with the other half being a mix of Syrah and Merlot. It spent three weeks on skins, before being pressed off to cuve to rest for six months. This year’s effort is a little more savoury and spiced, packing black fruit and plenty of charm onto its slender frame. Just perfect now the days are getting shorter and the leaves are beginning to fall.
